Offering discounts for advance payment

Nasihah (Advice): A fixed price for advance payments


Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said: “He who makes an advance payment should not make an advance payment except for a specified measure and weight (and for a specified period)” (Muslim)




Question and Answer:


  1. I want to enroll for an on-line course. The on-line course offers a discount on advance payments of fess while it offers a payment of normal monthly fees. Is it permissible to have two different fess for advance payments of fees and normal monthly fees in Shariah?
