A0A Shiekh Hisham,
My friend wants to get a fake Graduation degree to get a job. Everywhere he goes, they ask for a degree which he doesn’t have on him. Based on that degree he can do a REAL Masters degree. He wants to ask if the money earned using that degree will be halaal or haram. Please guide.
wa `alaykum salam,
Earning money in Islam is a sacred institution. A fake degree to get a job is deception and is expressly prohibited in Shari’ah.
