Selling discount coupons for gas
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
We are offering a program to sell fuel to people, the details of which are as follows: pay 200 riyaals and get coupons for gas worth 210 riyaals plus a free car wash, knowing that the amount of 200 riyaals is being paid in advance when you buy the gas coupons. Is this offer halaal or haraam?

Praise be to Allaah.
If the matter is as described, it is permissible to sell the coupons for gas plus a car wash for the amount stated, because the sale is in fact for the amount of gas described plus the car wash, and there is no deception, ribaa or jahaalah (purchase of unknown product) involved.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
