There are companies who asking online opinion in terms of survey and giving Rs 500 on each survey. For example: do u aware about samsung computers? r u using it? quality is good or not? etc...

speakasia company wants 11000 initially then you will get 2 sureys in a week. Total 8 surveys in a month till 11 months. 4000 for one month, excluding taxes..

They are asking 11000 because there is a new way of advertisment called Network marketing also called multilevel marketing. If I bring Two new person to join speakasia company they will give me 1000 Rs on one pair and if they 2 of them bring another 2 and 2 persons then I will get 2000 as 2 pairs now that 4 persons bring 2-2 persons then as per 4 pair I will get 4000 and so on.

dis makes pple to advertise abt d company. hence every person advertising it. which makes company to attract more and more person. company uses 11000 to rotate it to public in the form of advertising.

Is this allwoed or only survey allowed?

(Fatwa: 796/277/TL=1432)

Setting the condition of paying eleven thousand to get survey of the company is invalid condition, thus it is unlawful; therefore it is unlawful to join the companies and do surveys.
