Is it permissible to invest with Wahed Invest?


Assalam Alaikum,

I would like to know if it is permissable to invest with Wahed Invest Ltd. https://wahedinvest.com/uk/. As per details given on the site, they invest money in a variety of shares that are deemed to be halal and lawful to invest in and also 'purify' any money that might have been acquired from unlawful sources. They take a fixed percentage fee for administering the account every year.

Jazakallah Khair


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
