Income

Q:

I am currently a food delivery driver and I deliver in my car which is rented from a friend. My insurance policy says I must buy the car in order for me to be insured so I lied and told them I bought the car however, its rented. furthermore, I also lied about my no claims bonus so the price goes down and is affordable for me. My employer said I do deliveries in a car company I need food insurance so I told them I do it on a bike when I actually do it in a car. So considering that I lied to my insurance company and Im working in a car which was insured through lying and I am also not telling my employer the truth will be income be haram.

A:

Assalamu alaykum

For your query I phoned the office of Sayyid Sistani and the following is what they had to say:
Your income from food delivery is Halal. Although lying is a sin and you should definitely avoid the act. However, any gain or profit that you might make from the Insurance company, would be haram.
