payback interest free loan by buying car


i have some money and i borrow some more money from a friend so i can buy a car I also ask if he can buy the car on my behalf. Once he brings the car to me I pay the loan back interest-free and i also give him money for the service he provided of buying the car and bringing it to me is that halal


Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Salaamun Alaikum,

Yes, if the friend did not ask you and you are yourself willing to give him extra amount above the loan as a gift then this is Halal. In fact, this is even recommended.

InshaAllah may you also receive divine gifts in return.
