Question:

Assalamoalaikum,
I came through an app which is a money making plan called Champcash. I just have to complete some surveys, watch some videos and install games apps and play those games and I will earn by doing these. Is this type of earning halaal?
Jazakallahkher

Answer:

Bismillah

Abdullah ibn Masood raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrates that the Messenger of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said:

“Seeking of halal earnings is compulsory after the obligatory duties.”
(Shuabul Iman lil Baihaqi Hadith 8213)

Al-Hasan bin 'Ali raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrates: “I remember that the Messenger of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said:

'Leave what makes you in doubt for what does not make you in doubt. The truth brings tranquillity while falsehood sows doubt.'"

(JaamiTirmizi Hadith 2708)

Based on the above two Ahadith we can derive the importance of earning halal and refraining from haram and doubtful sources.

With regards to your question, Champcash is one of the many modern day crazes of making money fast. Many of these schemes are full of deception and it is best one avoids it.
