He sets up training courses, then he makes a contract with the trainer and the owner of the venue

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:
I organise educational and training courses for working people. I suggest courses and receive from the companies a list of attendees and payment in full, then I make an agreement with the trainer -- who does not work with me -- and I pay him his fees and the costs of the training venue from the payment I have received. What is the ruling on that?.

Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with supervising educational and training courses in the manner that you have described, and receiving payment in advance. This is a kind of hiring which the scholars call “hiring for a specific task”, the aim of which is work that has been agreed upon between one who is hired and the one who hired him, without any stipulation that the work should be done by a specific person. The scholars are unanimously agreed that it is permissible to pay the entire fee in advance; in fact, some of them -- such as the Shaafa’is -- say that this is obligatory and regard it as a condition of it being permissible. 

And Allaah knows best. 

See: al-Mawsoo’ah al-Fiqhiyyah, 32/286-287 

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.
