Bank Prizes 3item I deposited a sum of money in a savings account with the national bank. After a while, the bank gave me some money under the title of prize. What is the view on taking receipt of such money? Prizes are granted for deposits by way of ribā-free loans. What is the view on receiving such prizes? What is the view on depositing the money with the intention of receiving the prize? And assuming that taking receipt of such prizes is permissible; would the money be liable to khums? The savings accounts holders did not approach the bank to receive the prizes they won, either because they were not aware or for some other reason. Is it permissible for the bank to use the prizes or to distribute them among its employees?
