Ask an Alim

RIBA

Q:

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

A:

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.
