Discount on cost of
laundry if one pays in advance
Some laundry services tell people, buy a
voucher for seventy riyaals for example and we will do laundry for you worth
one hundred riyaals. If the customers do not buy this voucher, they will pay one hundred
riyaals for one hundred riyaals worth of laundry; if they buy it for seventy
riyaals, it will entitle them to have one hundred riyaals worth of laundry washed.
So this voucher is a kind of discount. Is it permissible to buy it from them and use it
for one's laundry?
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih
al-Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:
Yes, it is permissible, because they are saying, if you buy the voucher
in advance, we will wash your garment for seventy riyaals, otherwise it will cost you one
And Allaah knows best.
