Q: My question is a regarding business.

I have a store and sometimes I get some guys to buy from me goods for their organisation. (I have no idea who they are funded by). They will only bring to me business if I give them commision. So what I do is if I am selling something for 5000, I quote them 5500. After quote is accepted they give me 5500 and from there I will give them 500 as commision. I want to know is this a halal method? If not can you explain to me in detail a halal way so that we can carry on with business in our shariah way and follow the sunnats of our Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).

A: This is not correct.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
