Earning Salary through false certificat


Assalamu alaikum
I am working in a company for two years in a good salary, at the time of joining I created a false certificate to increase my qualification. Actually I have the minimum qualification to join that particular job. Its a technical job. Certificates is not mandatory. They only care about our works, not certificates (I am working as graphic designer). However I did a sin. Now I am getting frustration about that, I am afraid of Allah. What should I do, ? Should I tell my mistake here ? I suspects iam getting haram mixed salary.

Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question
If, as you said, the certificate is not mandatory for securing your job then your income is halal.
However, we should be careful not to lie. For Allah despises those who lie and has promised a follow up on the day of judgement.

Kind regards
