Ref. No. 38/827
I have an application named CASHBOSS in my phone.It tells to spin the wheel in 24 hrs and it gives that amount of money in which the wheel stops.For example, if the wheel stops at 5, it gives 5 rupees or if it stops at 20, it gives 20 rupees.The maximum amount is 20.This money can also be transferred to the bank account and can be withdrawn.This application also tells to install various applications from its advertisements for its continuation or else it would close.Is this amount halal or haram.

Ref. No. 38/826

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

Such a program is generated for advertisement of the products. Through this way you become a member of the company. If a company gives something to its advertisers as a gift, there is nothing wrong in it. So the money received from such programs is Halal. Nevertheless, one must avoid using any illegal and anti-sharia program for advertisement.

And Allah knows best
