Haram Money

Answered by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by Molana Eunus Ali Question: Asalamualaikum. Hazrar, I ask this question on behalf of a cousin of mine. Many years ago he used to work for a Car insurance company he was responsible for generate quotes for customers who were wanting to insure their car for the company he used to be working with. Whilst there he tool extended “sick” leave from work due to issues with his back. He was able to get a doctor’s note to confirm this was the case. However, he got a little too relaxed and prolonged the leave longer than necessary. Basically he was fit enough to go back to work much earlier, but continued lie to his employer that his back was still troubling him, and to his doctor, so he could get more medical claims to support his deceitful claim. Question is as follows: 1)      Is he required to pay ALL the money he had been paid during his sick leave from the point when he knew he should/could back to work back to his employer? 2)      What, if he can’t work out exactly how much month’s salary he been paid as this goes back quite a few years. 3)      Is he also expected to pay all the money back ever earned from working there (15 years) since insurance itself is haram? That’s almost £200, 000. Answer: Answer 1: … read more »
