Fundraising dinners

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Many Muslim organisations have fundraising dinners. The people attending these dinners pay a fee e.g. R300 per person. The names of all the attendees are entered into a draw. After enjoying the dinner, the names are drawn, and the winners of the draw are given prizes e.g. umrah ticket, etc. Is this permissible?

Bismillaah

A: This is a type of gambling.

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