Investing in mutual fund is not lawful. One invests in mutual fund to receive extra money. We do not have the details of the companions of the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) regarding earning money. You should fix the lawful and unlawful as standard i.e. earn money by lawful means and avoid unlawful earning.
