    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1084/915/B=1432) The provident fund that the employees receive with double amount is a gift from the company or the government that is given to an employee after he is retired with good performance. It is not interest as per the Shariah. It is right to take this amount with extra amount and one can spend it in all his needs and other good deeds. Do not reject it, this amount is not haram.
