Answered by: Maulana Sibghat Ullah


Is it Halal to earn through squadhelp (there you enter a competition and give the name for companies if the company chooses your name you get paid)?

الرَّحِيْم الرَّحْمنِ اللهِ بِسْمِ

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


If you are unsure of whether or not they will receive the money, it will be considered to be gambling. In Islam, all forms of gambling are forbidden.

In the scenario provided, if you as each individual/team pay an entrance fee and may or may not win the prize at the end then this will also be considered as gambling and will not be permissible.[i][ii]
