Title: Commission from supplier



I am working in private company and I am responsible for purchasing material
related to my work for clients. We have many suppliers and one of them he is
giving material on low price than others suppliers. He is giving me some
amount on placing orders without increasing his margin. Is this permissible
for me to take that amount?

I have loan from bank can I use that amount to pay my debts?


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

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The money given to you for placing orders is a bribe. It is not permissible to accept a bribe[1].


And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.

[1] مجمع الضمانات (1/ 345) 

الدلال لو باع العين بنفسه بإذن مالكه ليس له أخذ الدلالة من المشتري إذ هو العاقد حقيقة وتجب الدلالة على البائع إذا قبل بأمر البائع


حاشية ابن عابدين (رد المحتار) (4/ 560)

(قوله: فأجرته على البائع) وليس له أخذ شيء من المشتري؛ لأنه هو العاقد حقيقة شرح الوهبانية وظاهره أنه لا يعتبر العرف هنا؛ لأنه لا وجه له.

لأنه إن كان له خصومة في الحال، كان بمعنى الرشوة، وإن لم يكن؛ فربما يكون له خصومة في الحال يأتي بعد ذلك، فلا يقبل ولو قبل يكون لبيت المال، هذا إذا كان الرجل لا يهدي إليه قبل تقليد القضاء، فأما إذا كان يهدي إليه، فإن كان له في الحال خصومة لا تقبل؛ لأنه يتهم فيه.
