    Title: Ration card and sickness

    Question: I am working in a good company with good salary, when we applied for the ration card we got BPL card, we are taking ration from that card and selling to others, whether this is ok or not. In my house we are prone to many diseases I suspect this could be the reason why we are falling sick often. Kindly advise.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 728/582/D=07/1436) According to Govt definition, the ‘BPL Card’ is meant for drastically destitute and needy people. Hence in the case mentioned above if you are not eligible for the card then it is not lawful for you to get the card or derive benefit from it. You should stop selling the ration.
