Are premium bonds and their earnings halal?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com

Are premium bonds and the money got from these bonds halaal? If not what should be done with the money received from these premium bonds?


Wa Alaykum Salam,

Premium bonds are investments dependant upon interests. As such it is not permissible to invest in such schemes. Also, all earnings gained from premium bonds are haram and should be given to charity without the intention of gaining any rewards (sawab).

And Allah (swt) knows best.
