Am I allowed to use a ticket , my father booked from his agent friend, by paying less than the market price prevailing


My father has booked a ticket but later I came to know that he spent less money on it because the agent was his friend, is the ticket (halal)  allowed to use, as I later got to know  that such a thing has happened.


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your question.

Speaking to the office of Sayyid Sistani (D), they said: It is ok for you to use the tickets as provided by your father. You do not need to further look into it. it is halal for you to use it.

Travel agents usually have a margin of profit they want to make. These margins are flexible, and the price of the tickets may vary. However, if the agent himself cheated and got those prices, then it is upon him to answer for those and not yours. And you are not obliged to find out.

hope this was useful
