We have browsed through the website and understand that the website provides a service of generating traffic to other websites in exchange of a fixed fee. There are other programmes and benefits such as cash rewards and revenue generating products.


In principle, it is permissible to offer a service in exchange of a fixed service. This is termed as Ijarah in Shariah. Kindly advise on the specific component of the product you are enquiring about in order for us to issue a specific ruling.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
