His friend works in the airport and is going to get him a ticket for free – should he accept it?
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:
One of my friends works in the airport and he promised that he would bring me a ticket for free at the airline’s expense, but I do not work there. Is it permissible for me to use this ticket or not? If he brings it to me, what should I do? Should I refuse it?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Check below answers in case you are looking for other related questions:
If your friend is going to obtain this ticket in a permissible manner, such as if it is given to him by the airline company without him telling lies, offering a bribe or playing any tricks, then there is nothing wrong with your accepting it from him.
But if he is going to obtain it by some haraam means, then you should not accept it; do not help him in doing something haraam.
And Allaah knows best.
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.
