We have a wallman who is alloted 1 and a half hour to open the supply water wall for each lane. Now the wallman has a stance that he has very less salary from the office due to which he will not stand and open water for 1 and a half hour straight. Instead he opens the wall for half hour each lane due to which it does not reaches till the end houses of the lane. Now some houses are saying ok will give 200 pkr a month so that wallman so that he stands and opens the water for the 1 and a half hour straight. I'm sorry if I'm unclear but i read this somewhere
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: If he gives him a gift so that he will refrain from wronging him or so that he will give him his rights, this gift is haraam for the one who takes it, but it is permissible for the giver to give it to him, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I give a gift to one of them and he will depart, carrying it under his armpit like fire.” It was said: O Messenger of Allaah, why do you give them gifts? He said: “They insist on asking and Allaah insists that I should not be stingy.” Giving to these people is permissible for the giver, but it is haraam for the taker to take it.
Please do answer me either it is allowed or not.
