Is working on recommendation haram?


Sir if we do a work on recommendation (safarish) of other , like we are doing a job on recommendation of other then our this job is haram ? Or it is sin ? Explain me that it is haram or sin ?


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

There are 2 possibilities for the mentioned question:

  1. Either you bribe the worker to do your work;
  2. Or you go on someone’s recommendation and the worker does your work.

In both cases, if it is against the rules and regulations and it kills others’ right and you break the queue and line, it is considered Haram.

In the first case, in all the conditions it is Haram to bribe if he is taking extra money other than his salary for the same work. In the second case, if it doesn’t break the rules and regulations and others’ rights, then it is permissible.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
