(Fatwa: 1117/961=D/1429)


It is fraud and lie to show two-year experience to the company when actually you have no experience, therefore it is unlawful. Yes, if you are capable of doing the work entrusted to you then your earning will be lawful, but you will deserve the sin of lie and deception. Therefore, you should speak the truth.

Allah knows Best!
