Network marketing company especially in FLP company america

 

I want to know is it halal to work in network marketing company especially in ‘FLP company america’, as this is the matter of lakhs of muslim youth who have joined it and earning lakhs of amount. One of my friend also invited me to join FLP company, please tell me whether I should join it or not???

The other Muftis are saying it is haram as our deoband futwa board has verdicted this as Haram… but some are saying FLP is giving you money with out ur efforts(bagair mehnat).

The direct marketing business model that FLP uses doesn’t raise any concerns. Also the products that they sell are categorized as health and beauty, so there’s nothing of concern there either. This company is legally operating in many countries for several years so it doesn’t appear to be a scam. it has halal certificate.

after free registration under sponsorship of a person who is making me to join through his id, company is giving us their products (aloevera contained-health products) with some discount to sell/recommend them in general public.

Steps or levels we have to pass in order to achieve different status/level in company

1) we have to buy products at least 5000 and sell them. To achieve the level in which we can add/join some other person by ourselves under our sponsorship to do same business.After achieving this ,Here we become business owner.

2) we have to sell/recommend the product of cost 33000 to acheive 2cc(cc=case creadit, which is common currency of this company all over the world). Here we become Assistant supervisor.

Like wise acheiving different levels in company after getting respective no. Of CCs (case creadits)

at different levels/status we are earning different amounts of salaries respectively.

3) Here we are getting bonus/passive income(cc) from our downlines(the person/s joined by me or the person joined by them, joined by them next ….so on upto end line)as well.some special percentage of amount we are getting from their(downlines) work as well.this earning is called as bonus or passive income here.

Butt here is an important that the bonus amount/passive income is subjected to a condition that we must fill, the condition is that “we have to generate a special no. Of CCs (case credits) by ourselves actively”, then we get our passive income otherwise we will be denied of passive/bonus income.

4)if somebody does not work or suspend his work for a particular time, his gained CCs will be washed off.

This was brief

For details you can google FLP companies procedure and get well known with it.

Now waiting for answere?????

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

You have not specified the company's operating procedures under your question, so the judgment cannot be given. However, in the multi-level marketing business, there is  insurance, interest and gambling, in addition to   income through membership, which is not permissible according to shari'ah. Therefore, if above defects are found in business, it will not be permissible to get involved in such business.

Provide details of the company's operating procedures, to enable  us to give a sound judgment on this.
