Subject : Ruling on Financing Services and Medical Fees for Members of Provident Fund

Question :

What is the religious ruling on the agreement of procuring services and medical fees offered by the provident fund of the Jordan Petrol Refinery (See attached copy)?

The Answer :

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.

After reviewing the terms of the aforementioned agreement, it is obvious that the provident fund finances services and medical fees-offered from specialized medical centers to members of the fund-via an interest-free loan under the condition that the loan is paid for in instalments. At the same time, the fund receives a commission of Ju`ala (Conditional payment) in return for bringing customers, and this is permissible. However, terms referring to the procurement or the selling of services must be deleted. Therefore, we prefer using "Financing services" instead, because there is no practical impact for the procurement of services. In addition, it wasn`t made clear how the fund has access to services ownership, so it should be made clear as well. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
