The teacher's card

Q: What is the ruling on the teacher's card, for which certain fees are charged in order to obtain a discount from some hotels, hospitals, malls, and trade centers?

(Part No. 14; Page No. 17)  A: The teacher's card as described, for which fees are charged, is impermissible according to Shari`ah (Islamic law), because it involves uncertainty and eating up money unjustly. Accordingly, it is not permissible to issue these cards or deal in them. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
