Question:

 

I already asked a few questions regarding this matter I have 100 dollars of which 50 is halal and 50 is haraam and I invest 45 in halal business from that 100 with intention of investing a halal portion of the money and using the other 50 on myself does income from the business will be halal or still, half the portion of business income will also be haraam even if I made an intention of investing halal portion and consume other portion on myself or whatever

 

 

In the name of Allah the most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

 

Answer

 

If you have money of which half is from haram earnings then it is necessary to give half of your money to charity and the rest of the money will be halal. Thus, if you invest the rest of it in a business then the profit earned from that money will be halal.

 

مَنْ اشْتَرَى جَارِيَةً بَيْعًا فَاسِدًا وَتَقَابَضَا وَبَاعَهَا وَرَبِحَ فِيهَا يَتَصَدَّقُ بِالرِّبْحِ، وَإِنْ اشْتَرَى الْبَائِعُ بِالثَّمَنِ شَيْئًا وَرَبِحَ فِيهِ طَابَ لَهُ الرِّبْحُ لِأَنَّ الْجَارِيَةَ مِمَّا يَتَعَيَّنُ بِالتَّعْيِينِ فَيَتَعَلَّقُ الْعَقْدُ بِهَا فَيُؤَثِّرُ الْخُبْثُ فِي الرِّبْحِ وَالدَّرَاهِمُ وَالدَّنَانِيرُ لَا تَتَعَيَّنَانِ فِي الْعُقُودِ فَلَمْ يَتَعَلَّقْ الْعَقْدُ الثَّانِي بِعَيْنِهَا فَلَمْ يُؤَثِّرْ الْخُبْثُ فِيهِ وَهَذَا إنَّمَا يَسْتَقِيمُ عَلَى الرِّوَايَةِ الصَّحِيحَةِ وَهِيَ أَنَّهَا لَا تَتَعَيَّنُ كَذَا فِي الْعِنَايَةِ .
