Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1078 I was at the petrol station and finished putting petrol in the car, and then I lifted the pipe up and petrol came out of the pipe, am I allowed to do this because in my head I think that I’m paying for that petrol and it’s just getting left behind, am I right?
Mashallah it is good to see that you are conscious in pleasing Allah (S.W.T) in your daily actions. May Allah (S.W.T) grant you steadfast in Islam.

The principle as I understand it is that when the nozzle has been lifted up from the pump and the petrol is inserted into the vehicle, you are being charged for the amount of petrol you use. The overall total bill due is when the nozzle is placed back into it appropriate place on the pump, causing it to switch off the pump.

The amount shown on the pump at this point is the amount of petrol you have used. So to answer your question the petrol you are referring to is perfectly acceptable to use.

And Allah (S.W.T) knows best.
