Salary vs Work I do


Dear Ask Alim,

Few years ago I joined a Company, during an interview they asked me are you qualified which I was not at that point in time and due to risk of being rejected I said, yes I am. Company did not perform background check and I got offer and I started working. I got good feedback during my work and always appreciated by Executives. Meanwhile, I was preparing for exam to complete studies – however my management believe I have completed studies. Recently company promoted me as well on the basis of my work, performance and underline meeting of studies criteria. I always deliver tasks on time and perform with utmost quality even similar quality as expected from someone who is fully qualified. I am trying to complete my studies and which is still in progress, my education do not affect my performance.

My question is, getting salary against my work performed is legitimate/ Halal for me or I should resign and find something else. Please note, before advise – my work performance is even better than few qualified people but yes I agree I am not yet fully qualified and I lied. My few exams left, 60% exams already passed.

Considering all factors above, my earning is halal for me or not.
