Commission/Discount Upon Purchase


Dear sir, my question is that is it legal or illegal to get commission or discounts from purchasing..e.g i went to purchase my company material..the shopkeeper gifted me safety shoes..i had no intention..he said that this is from me to u.

Also if i purchase material of my company..from one particular supplier. Can i get commission? As most of the people, doing now a days.


Getting discounts from purchases is not illegal. If the gift was given with no intention of a bribe –  it is fine.

​If you get commission from your company, it is fine. But, if you are getting commission from the one you are purchasing from, and if it is with the intention of bribe, then it is haraam.
