money earned as student is halal or haram


If someone is on student visa in any european country like UK,Australia etc.According to there law they allow only 20 hours to work in a week for student and not more than that,which is not sufficient time to earn as much to meet there needs. For this they work more than allowed time which is illegal according to there law,even the work he doing is halal. Please answer is that money earned is halal or haram for him.

Salaam Alaykum,
For your Question I got in touch with Sayyid Sistani’s office and they said:
“You must abide by the laws you agreed to while obtaining the visa”
