    Title: Salaray

    Question: I worked in a company when I was in college. Due to some reason I have to discontinue my going to work. I did not gave them any notice thinking they would not permit my leave but just stopped going to office and stopped taking their calls and thought they would automatically understand that I have left. But either due to some error in the finance system of the company my salary kept on crediting in my account for the next 6 months. I do not know why it is happening but I never asked them for this money, neither could I call them back nor tell them as why they are sending this salary as I have absconded from job without notice. I have used the money, is it haram. The company should have automatically stopped my salary once I was absent. What should I do please suggest? Have I done something which is wrong?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 628/493/H=1434) The salary which was credited into your account after you left the job is not halal for you. Now you should return that amount to the company.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
