Ask The Imam Question and Answer

728 I recently went on your website (after a long time) to look for the answer to my question but I could not find it. Just wanted to know whether u have posted on the net yet? If yes then where will I find it and if NO then when will u answer it? The question was about pension schemes. I wanted to know if we can pay into a pension scheme at work.
If it is a compulsory pension scheme then you have to comply with the contribution as its required by legislation on you employer to make a deduction and you will have no choice to opt out provided by your employer, in this case the benefits would classify as a gift. If the scheme is voluntary then one must avoid participation as it is no different then investing in bonds.
