A student living in the university's dormitory giving his visitors from the student's food which is cheaper

Q 3: I am a university student, and when non-student friends come to visit me, I give them a food coupon that is sold to us for 1.5 Dinars. (Part No. 22; Page No. 332) However, non-student visitors should get 5.00 Dinar food tickets. Bearing in mind that leftover food is thrown into the trash can, what is the ruling on doing this in a non-Muslim country?

A: If the reality is as you mentioned, this is lying and helping to take others’ property unlawfully. This is, therefore, Haram (prohibited). It is not permissible for a Muslim to take others’ property through lying, whether they are Muslims or Dhimmys (protected non-Muslims living under Islamic rule). However, if the people are non-Muslims involved in a war against Muslims, their property is Halal (lawful) to Muslims.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
