Q: I am an accountant and maintain double vouchers/books of accounts from the actual books for the purpose of reducing the taxes on sale income and also to increase the expenditure from the actual expenses to show that the company has less profit. I make double vouchers and books for tax purposes ordered by the company’s owner. My question is, is my profession jaiz or not? Is the salary which I receive are halal or haram?
A: To save yourself from extortion and zulm etc. is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
