Manager of a shop buying from his children

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If a person that does buying for a shop (he is not the owner) he guides his children buy this and this for the shop and you add some profit for yourselves and then I will buy it from you for the shop (the children use their own money and then sell it to the shop and they increase the price to make a profit). And if it was not for the children he would have bought it straight from the supplier and no extra money need be paid. Is it permissible for the children to sell to the shop in this manner?


A: If that is the best price that is available then he can buy it.
