Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Date Added : 28-10-2015

Resolution No.(73) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:
“ Ruling on Deducting a Percentage from the Value of Vouchers Given to Drivers Against Collecting them on their Behalf “
Date: 17/2/1425 AH corresponding to 7/4/2004 AD.

Question:
What is the ruling when( Aqaba Voucher Encashment Agencies for Freight Drivers) collect the sums of vouchers given to freight drivers from the (Jordan United Transport) with deducting (5%) against the effort they exert in doing that?
Answer: All success is due to Allah.
The Board is of the view that it is impermissible for the above agencies to take a percentage of the collected sums(in accordance with the manner stated above) because this transaction is parallel to usurious loaning and bill discounting. However, it is permissible for the above agencies to charge a fixed sum, not related to any percentage from the amounts due to owners or drivers of trucks, against collecting these amounts on their behalf, whether these amounts are big or small since both entail the same effort. Moreover, it is permissible for these agencies to pay the owners and drivers of these trucks the amounts due to them as a good will loan, to be collected later. And Allah knows best.
