Is this halal? (2) If he pays me variable like one time Rs. 5000 another month 6,000 is this halal? Please suggest your opinion on this with valid points.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 144/156/=02/1437) It is not lawful to take profit each month without investing ones money as partnership or muzarabah. Likewise if he gives money without fixing it then it shall also not be lawful to take it. If you want to earn profit then it shall be necessary to invest your money as partnership or muzarabah.
