Assalamu Alaikum to my Brothers in Islam,
SCENARIO: A Muslim cheats in the college exams by any means (Copying, Peeking etc) and without cheating he or she couldnt have passed the exam.
Because of cheating he/she passed the exams. and so this made them eligible to earn the degree (B.Sc, B.A, MBBS, B.Com etc)
1) Is such a degree Halal or Haram? Can a person use this degree to get interviews and secure jobs?
2) If he or she does secure a job, will the earning be considered halal or will it be devoid of Barakah?
3) What is the best course of action for a Muslim who has obtained a degree by cheating and is still unemployed and is searching for a job?
