Question

In one of the book fairs, they sold tickets for money to be given to the mujaahideen, and those who answered a question correctly were entered into a draw to be given prizes bought from the dealers who were taking part in the exhibition. 

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him), who answered:

It is not permissible, because the way in which it is done is haraam.
