Q: I am an engineer. I did manipulate my resume to get a job and I have experience in that job but I added no. of years experience in my resume because companies usually looks for no. of years experience. But I resigned from that company because I felt guilty and confused about haram or halal. On my previous company I did my work very well and I am a hard worker too. Is manipulating the resume is haram? If it is, then what about making money through that job and spending it for my family and my entire life? From last one year I don’t have any job and i got no. of job offers with the previous resume and I rejected it. But this time I am so confused because in one place I saw it is fine if your giving 100 percentage to the company but there is no authentic sources. Now I got a offer letter and confused about it.
A: Your work and remuneration are halaal. Make taubah for the manipulation.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
