Question :

Two teachers have reached an agreement by which one pays a certain sum to the other against swapping jobs. What is the ruling of Sharia on this?


The Answer :

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.

Job swapping is when two teachers in different schools "swap" or exchange jobs with the approval of the official bodies. In principle, the Ministry of Education is responsible for identifying staff movement mechanisms and regulations.

In conclusion, it is forbidden to take money against swapping one`s job with another staff member because, from an Islamic perspective, it is taking money unjustly. In this regard, Allah the Almighty says, "And do not eat up your property among yourselves for vanities, nor use it as bait for the judges, with intent that ye may eat up wrongfully and knowingly a little of (other) people’s property."{Al-Baqara, 188}. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
