Someone on Facebook asked that whether earning from Academic Writing is Halal or Haram? People from all walks of life answered on this. However, no one was mufti here.
Check out the answers:
People have different take on it. Islamic scholars think it’s not permissible based on helping someone to get the degree / pass the grade or whatever. I talked to a guy who is supposed to give fatwas and it is bit too complicated.
Although I got a lot of offer for academic writing I did not take on this job, I find it wrong and unethical and its cheating. I don’t know about it being halaal or haraam but my heart doesn’t let me do it, Islam teach us ethics and good behavior, keeping that in mind I think we better avoid it .
Life in Danger?
Hopefully not. You are helping cheating someone that can put people’s lives to danger.
If you are doing academic writing on websites as resource material then it’s perfectly halal, and I consider it to be the best niche in that sense. Otherwise, it’s the worst.
In the esearch field, some students cannot express their technical work in research papers. Often the faculty members help them on the condition that their names shall be included in authors list. Here the academic writing is the only way out for them for not including extra authors in their work. So in this context, it is obviously halal.
Avoid It… (Best option?)
I have given up on it and focusing on other types of writing. The best is to stay away as money is not it, there is something called ‘faith’ and we shouldn’t forget it. Rest is your call, decide whatever seems good to you.
It’s a complicated matter. It’s actually unethical to get someone’s assignment done for a fee. The ones that are doing it on their own might get affected and it will be injustice with the ones who are working hard. What if your client gets good grades even when he doesn’t deserve it? I used to do it too but now I avoid it as it feels unethical. It’s always better to avoid the grey area.
This is the reason that Bosses are STUPID
Let’s put it this way, you help others to ace their grades. What they do instead while you are preparing their assignments and fulfilling their tasks, they party hard, they hang out with friends, they have fun all around the semester, and they do not learn anything. Yet, they are able to ace their grades, because academic writers create their projects.
They develop the tendency to get things done by paying up others to get them done for them.
The Outcome: You help educate dofuses who corrupt the corporate environment of tomorrow. As a result, multinational firms become stagnant and it all funnels down to stupid people ruling over smart ones. Now, you know why most bosses are unimaginably stupid and powered by complexities… It’s because they made it to the top! All thanks to academic writers.
