        To Charge a Fee for Keeping and Storing a Pawn

        Q: Is it permissible to take a fee for storing, keeping and guarding the gold pawned in exchange for an interest-free loan? If yes, is it allowed to calculate fee on the basis of gold weight and time of pawning?
        A: Storing and keeping a pawn is the duty of the pawnbroker and he/she has no right to take fees for that. Moreover, charging and taking such money in return for storing the pawn is really a trick to take ribā and, thus, it is ḥarām.
