Q. I gave my mobile phone to a friend for repairs. Some days later he give me back my mobile phone and said that there is another problem in it, maybe the battery. When I took my phone from him it was the same as before, it was not working. Then I gave my phone to another repairer for repairing. The other repairer said that there was a problem and all parts are all right and he repaired the phone. So I paid the amount to the second repairer. I want to know if I have to pay the first repairer or not?
A. If the first repairer says that he had worked on the phone and that you must pay him for his service, then you must pay him. If however, he says that he did not repair it, then you do not have to pay him.
And Allah knows best.
