A doctor selling the free samples of medicines they receive
Q 2: Some doctors
sell samples of medicines that the pharmaceutical companies give them free of charge.
It is written on these samples that they are free and not to be sold, but the doctors try to erase this. Is this permissible? If the company representative knows that a doctor asks for extra samples to sell, will they be sinful if they give them to the doctor? What is the ruling on a pharmacist who buys and sells these samples, knowing what they are?
It is not permissible for doctors to accept these samples at all; and it is all the more impermissible to sell them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
