Selling samples

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am a Muslim and a doctor. In our country, Medical Representatives (all pharmaceutical companies) visit us with some physician samples daily and we receive it. Few of them we provide to some poor people, and most of them we sell it. By selling it we get some money. And we use this money for our personal use. As a Muslim is it halal or haram for us? 


A: It is halaal.

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