Being forced to give a bribe

Q 5: A man is entitled to a property deed that he can get only by paying some money. Is it permissible for him to pay this money to get it? Or is this money regarded as a bribe? Or does it come under the saying of the Messenger (peace be upon him) And what they have been forced to do. ? You should bear in mind that unless he pays this money, he will not get his title deed except after many years.

A: Whoever is entitled to a property deed should follow the official procedures, and if anyone asked him for a bribe, he should not give it to him; rather he should inform his supervisor.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
