Message: Salaams, is it haraam to earn an income through organo gold? It works much like blessings/reward of say teaching quraan and that knowledge being passed on to others and you get rewarded for that effort continuing down. Organo gold is the same, the people we tutor and help and that they tutor and help don’t loose anything to us, the company pays us a commission for continuing to spread their business through sales and bring people on your team and tutoring them and working together. Is this haraam?
Wa Alaikum Assalaam,
الجواب و بالله التوفيق
Organo Gold is a Multi-level Marketer and operates like other Multi-level marketing Companies. In this form of business, while a person can make money by selling the Company’s products, monies are also made when others become recruits under this person and when they recruit others under them and it goes further down the line.
While selling the products to earn money will be permissible, monies/benefits earned through recruiting others going down the line will not be permissible.
And Allah Knows Best.
