Adjusting the amount in an invoice

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I work in a construction company and I’m responsible for selling the scrap from the workshop. However when I sell the scrap for e.g. $2000 and keep $100 for myself and make an invoice for $1900 and submit it to the accounts. Is this act considered haram? 


A: It is not right.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
