(Fatwa: 985/992/N=1433)

It is lawful as per the Shariah to do brokerage and take the commission as per the percentage from the person for whom brokerage is done for the sale and purchase of the property or vehicles etc keeping oneself away from deception and cheating. Thus the amount of the commission will be lawful and halal. (Islam Aur Jadid Masail 2:200-201)
