Provident fund from the government

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I live in Pakistan and my father is a govt servent. He is about to retire and at retirement the govt gives alot of money as provident fund. This money is actually a combination of 3 things.

1. It cuts from monthly salary for over 25 years.
2. Each month govt adds some amount to this monthly.
3. Bank adds up interest and that I also added to the amount

At retirenment all these amounts add up and given to the employee. So is it halal to do hajj with this money?


A: In principle, this money is coming from the government. You are not answerable for what they are doing.

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