Forging Certificates In Order To Gain Employment
A man wants to do a certain job which he is able to do and can win the competition (for jobs), but he does not have the certificate which will entitle him to enter the competition. Is it permissible for him to forge the certificate to enter the competition, and if he succeeds, will his wages be permissible for him or not?

Praise be to Allah.

It seems to me, from the pure shariah and its sublime goals, that such actions are not permissible, because this is gaining employment by means of lying and deceiving. These are forbidden, and are things that open the door to evil and pave the way for deceit. Undoubtedly those who are entrusted with the task of hiring employees must seek qualified and trustworthy people as much as possible.

Shaykh Ibn Baz (may Allah have mercy on him)
