Buying a cheaper ticket and showing the company a higher price

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’m going to my home country on vacation from Saudi Arabia and my company is giving me an air ticket of 2090 Saudi Riyals. I told them that I will buy it myself.

If I buy a cheap ticket in a less privileged airline and show them an invoice of a privileged airline, the same that the company was supposed to buy for me. Kindly tell me if it is okay or the surplus money will be haraam.


A: It is better that you discuss this with the company itself.

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