Q: I used to work in a company in which we scam people, so is the money earned halal or haraam? Can I use that money for good deeds or for investing it in halal business? If not, what must be done with that money?
A: This work is corruption and injustice. How can it be halaal.
Return it to those whom you have taken it from.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
