96310: The boss distributed to them money that was for the office and he let them use their own cars


I work for a foreign agency in Cairo; all the workers are Egyptian and the boss is a foreigner. The boss distributed some money to the workers that was set aside for hiring cars for work to do with the office, so that the workers would use their own cars and let the office use them when needed. That was done as a reward to increase the level of income. This is not part of the policy of the head office overseas. Is this money halaal or not?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If the matter is as described, and the boss did that as a reward or to raise the level of income, then there is nothing wrong with taking the money, even if this is not part of the policy of the head office, because it benefits the work. It is most likely that the boss only did that because he knew that he had the authority to take that decision.  And Allaah knows best.
