We are a commercial company which sells lawful commodities. We have two ways of calculating our profits: First: Calculation upon completion of a monthly financial period. Second: Calculation upon completion of an annual financial period. Upon calculating the monthly financial period, the company distributes part of its profits as gifts and incentives to shoppers each shopper getting 600 Riyals. Upon completion of a financial year, the company awards every shopper from its profits with a final gift and an incentive of more than 5000 Saudi Riyals out the company’s desire to increase its sales and promote its commodities. Worthy mentioning is that these gifts distributed by the company are not allowances or investment benefits for the shoppers but they are pure gifts and incentives from the company’s profits given to shoppers as a way of honoring them, promoting company’s commodities and as a desire to increase its sales. Based on what has been mentioned, the company does not use the system of withdrawing distribution of gifts and incentives which involves uncertainty but every shopper is given these gifts at the end each monthly and yearly financial periods. I would also like to inform you that the company uses brokerage system whereby a broker is not required to shop. If a person who is not a shopper brings customers he is given 75 Riyals for each customer as payment for his effort. My question is what is the ruling on this? May Allah make you beneficial and guide you to the truth.
