Q: I live abroad. I am the only son of my parents and there is no one to look after them nicely in Pakistan. I applied for my parents residence visa but for no reason they rejected my parents visa. Our company legal manager contacted one person in the department, he helped us getting my parents visa. After I got my visa, he is asking for his gift for the work done. I didn’t promise any gift in advance. He says he helped so he deserves a gift i.e. an expensive mobile. I cannot say no to him ethically because he helped me a lot to get the visa. Is it halaal to give him mobile? I am very worried.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
