Offering free education on condition that the student gives back a fixed percentage after he begins earning

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to start a school where I also want to educate poor students who cannot afford education. They will be given admission on the basis of a contract saying that in future when they start earning they will give 10% of their earning to me and in the case where they don’t earn, they don’t have to give anything. Is this permissible?


A: No.

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