Wakeel making improvements to item before selling it

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I earn a living selling cars. I go to auctions and buy second-hand cars. Thereafter, I leave the car with a dealer who has a showroom. The dealer sells the car for me and we split the profit according to a pre-agreed percentage (e.g. 50% each).

Before selling the car, the dealer sometimes has some work done on the car such as repairing wind-screen chips, touching up the paint, changing the tyres, etc. The cost for this work is deducted from my share of the profit. Is this permissible?


A: It is permissible.

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