    Title: Provident Fund halal or haram.

    Question: I worked in the firm for 11 months (28 mar 2012 - 23 Feb 2013) and I received (10,142 + 4,998) = 15,140 Rs FROM EMPLOYEE PROVIDENT FUND... I wanted to know what part of it is halal and what part is haram? As I heard that PF is not just my money but government adds some interest to it. Please provide me the solution?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 51/32/TL=01/1435) All the payments by the company are halal (lawful) for you. The PF amount is also lawful. The addition made by the govt. to PF is lawful, it is a kind of prize and gift from the govt., it may not be categorized as interest.
