Q: Is it permissible in a mudaarabat partnership for both the rabbul maal and the working partner to draw a specified equal salary per month? Can the salaries be different to the profit share ratio?
A: It is not permissible. Both are entitled to their share in the business based on mutual agreement.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
