    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 450/444/N=06/1436) It is unlawful to make or get fake certificate as it involves lie and cheating which is unlawful and haram in the Shariah. Also it is not lawful to earn money through it. However, in case someone has got a job on the basis of such certificate then if he is fit for the job and is discharging his assigned duties properly then the salary earned through such job will not be termed as haram.
