As the business volume i.e. sales increases the percentile increses.But here it gives the commission from the sales.for eg if we buy a tooth paste for 32 rupees we get back 20% also as compared to other market product it is cheap. My question is that can we do this business.

(Fatwa: 118=117/D)


It is allowed to become member of RCM and take commission on that. Likewise, it will be allowed to sell items purchased thereof and receive benefit. But, participating in the network marketing system which requires adding two members in the network and getting benefit on the purchasing of these members, is unlawful. Also, there are some more evils in this scheme that involve interest and Bai-e-Fasid (transaction having any major falult). Therefore, it will not be allowed to participate it.
