~ Question ~
Is freelancing in academic writing haram? I have been doing academic writing for a while now and I have been thinking about it, I even quit for a while. So, please let me know, is getting paid for doing someone’s assignments and courses okay? Is the money halal? I mean we are, technically, deceiving the professors though. I want to resume it but I’m not sure, please let me know?
~ Answer ~
It is Haram. In Islam to write someone’s assignments for them to present it with his/her name for a degree or money is not Halal.
If someone writes his/her own assignment and you proofread it, correct mistakes and help with referencing, etc. and then get paid for it, then its permissible.
Allah knows best
