Getting “cash back” from Google Pay

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: There is an app of Google known as “Google pay”. It’s used to transfer money from account to account. But every time when this app is used for money tranfer, it gives some money back as “cash back”. For example… if I transfer 1000 rupees to Zaid’s account, Zaid will get the full 1000 rupees and I will also get 10 or 20 rupees as cash back. Is this 10 to 20 rupees halaal?


A: If Google is giving you the cash back reward and it is not involving any loan or bank then it is permissible.

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