Money deducted from salary and given at retirement

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My question is regarding the interest on a GP fund of government employees. A fixed amount is deducted from our salary on a monthly basis, against our will, and then they give interest on it annually. One gets this total amount on his retirement. What is the Islamic ruling regarding this? Is it halal or not?


A: If it is invested without your volition then the money will be permissible.

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