I have started purchasing defence & saving certificates since 1998 in order of my office to get tax benifit.
Is my purchasing defence & savings certificates haram ?



Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)


The certificate you mentioned above involves Riba (interest). Therefore, it will not be permissible to invest in such schemes.



And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.

Mufti
