Business proposal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have been offered a business proposal to be a shareholder in a new company by a businessman who is going to be the financier of the business. The offer is as follows:

(1) Better my current salary where I am currently working.

(2) 30% shares of the business.

He is also basing this decision on my knowledge and contacts that I have on the nature of this business. We have both agreed to have everything in writing at the right authorities. Please advise on how I should go about doing it.


A: This is correct.

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