I work in a government department as an engineer and I have to accept the work of the contractors. Sometimes there is some shortfall in the specifications, so I tell my boss at work, who in turn tells his boss who is in charge of the department, and he gives instructions to overlook it and accept the work. What should I do from the shar‘i point of view if I obey my boss in this matter?

I would like to ask a question about Bank al-Iskaan wa’l-Ta‘meer (Housing and Development Bank) here in Egypt. Land in new cities is sold via this bank in a lottery system. When paying the deposit to take part in the lottery it is stipulated that 10% of the value of the land be paid up front, and of course this money is put in the bank until the day of the lottery. After the results of the lottery are announced, if your name is drawn, then you pay the rest of the money in instalments w ...

The wages of 8.67 days x 3% are deducted from my basic salary each month for the workers’ retirement fund. When I attended the Annual General Meeting to discuss the budget of this fund, I found out that the money collected is distributed among a number of banks and the fund benefits from depositing money in banks at an interest rate of 12.5%. We do not benefit from this money at all throughout our years of service except at the end of our service, when we can get 127 months of our last basi ...

I work in a centre that corrects exam papers. The work involves adding up marks and entering them into the electronic system or returning the papers to where they should be kept, or printing them to be taken for checking.

Can I be hired by a man to buy a car for him from another country in return for a set amount of money, knowing that the country from which the car will be bought imposes a tax on the purchaser if he is going to use the car in that country, but if he is going to take it to his own country, he can ask for the tax to be refunded after paying it, and the agent wants to take the amount paid in tax for himself without asking the permission of the one who appointed him?

In 1996 I was in a car crash, and I was supposed to submit my papers to the insurance company, but I did not do so until I was in another accident in 2001, when I did not have any insurance. As a result of that accident I became paralyzed and needed treatment. I am very poor, praise be to Allaah. Because I tried all possible ways (with no success) can I submit my papers to the insurance company? Allaah knows the distress and hardship that I am facing.
