Question Id 15724

I am sending below attachment please give me satisfy answer

Answer:

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Brother in Islaam,

You have not adequately stated your query. Perhaps you enquire regarding the Shari’ah compliancy of the QNet[1] investment scheme. You have further attached screenshots of a Fatwaa of Azhar Shareef which outlines the conditions of a valid sale.

QNet is a multi-level marketing scheme which works with the binary option model, which is based upon uncertain future events (gharar) and gambling. Hence, it is impermissible to join this investment scheme[2].

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
