An agent giving a bribe

A: If the situation is as you mentioned, that you deal with recruitment offices that give airport employees in India money to facilitate house servants’ travel outside the country, which the Indian government forbids, or you pay the airport employees this money to facilitate your request, this is considered as a bribe and cooperation in sin. Allah (Exalted be He) says: (Part No. 14; Page No. 281)  Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwâ (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. It was also reported from `Amr ibn Abu Salamah, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, who said, The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) cursed the briber and the bribed in making judgment. (Related by Al-Tirmidhy in "Al-Jami‘ Al-Sahih", Abu Dawud in "Al-Sunan", Imam Ahmad in "Al-Musnad", and Ibn Majah in "Al-Sunan") Accordingly, it is not Halah (lawful) for you to do this work or take money in return for it. We advise you to stop doing this and make sincere Tawbah (repentance to Allah) for this. If anyone leaves something for the Sake of Allah, He will compensate them with something better. Allah says: And whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. If you do not pay the recruitment office owners or the airport employees money to facilitate your request, and this does not entail deception of the systems that have been (Part No. 14; Page No. 282) agreed upon between the two countries regarding the method of bringing workers into the country, there is no harm in doing this work and taking money in return for it, provided that the person who has authorized you knows this, that the workers brought are Muslims, and the women have a Mahram (spouse or permanently unmarriageable relative) with them, so your conscience will be clear. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
