The company where we work established what it called "fines fund" where certain amounts are deducted from staff salaries as penalty for violating the company`s by-laws, such as absence from work, coming late and safety abuses. The money is used for the social welfare of the staff members in line with what the committee in charge of the Fund sees fit. Some members suggested initiating Umrah trips, but some argued that the money in the Fund could have been taken unjustly since the fee of three days is deducted against absence for one day and some employees are fined for violating safety measures while others aren’t. In light of this, what is the ruling of Sharia on initiating these trips from the money deposited in this Fund?
