Fatawaa


Subject :

Fatwa Number : 1545

Classified : Competitions & Games

Fatwa Type : Summarized Fatawaa


Question :

What is the ruling on taking part in an online contest to win a prize of 100,000 dollars in return for answering thirty questions in different fields of knowledge and science? This is knowing that there is no drawing of lots; only one or two cards are purchased to commence the contest.



The Answer :

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

This is a form of gambling, which is impermissible to participate in, because the people in charge of this online contest increase the value of the calls to compensate for the value of the prizes. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
