Is it permissible for the broker to receive payment from the car’s owner in return for selling it for him?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
A friend said to me: I want to buy a car in return for deferred payment; do you know anyone? I said: Yes. I went to the car’s owner and told him: I have a customer for you, but I want a broker fee without my friend finding out. What is the ruling on what I did?.

Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with working for a seller or a buyer; there is nothing wrong with stipulating a condition in that case. End quote. 

Majmoo’ Fataawa Ibn Baaz (19/31). 

See also the answer to question no. 45726, in which we explained that it is permissible to accept payment for brokerage, so long as the broker is trustworthy and honest. 

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
