First, if this mediation leads to depriving a person who has priority from their chance to get a job, and he has the qualifications and ability to perform the job, mediation will be Haram in this case. This entails injustice to those who deserve the opportunity, injustice to the rulers because they were deprived of competent employees who could have helped them, and injustice to the Ummah (community) because they were deprived of people who could have managed its affairs. In addition, it causes grudges, doubts and corruption in the society.However,
if the mediation does not result in denying others of their rights, it will be considered lawful or even desirable, and the mediator will be rewarded for it in shaa'-Allah (if Allah wills). It was authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said,
Help and recommend, and you will receive the reward for it. Allah will bring about what He will through His Prophet's (peace be upon him) tongue.
(Part No. 25; Page No. 390) Second, schools, institutes and universities are public facilities for the Ummah where people can learn what benefits them in religious and worldly affairs. There is no one who has priority over the other on any other basis except mediation. If the mediator knows that this mediation results in the deprivation of a more deserving person, whether regarding competence, age or priority from an opportunity, it will be prohibited due to the injustice it leads to, and the grudges and corruption it causes in the society.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
