I am working in hotel industry where by as the nature of hospitality we have bar in the hotel where by we received our salary from the hotel is it haram?

Secondly we receive service charge from our employer added to our salary and this service charge come from all outlet including bar, in this issue what am I supposed to do.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In order for us to answer you, explain to us the details of the service charge procedure. How does the employees get the service charge? Is the service charge compulsory on the costumers? Who is giving the service charge, the person serving or the employer? Does the employee have a legal right on the service charge from the employer and is that part of the contract? Explain the issue in detail for our consideration.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
