Restricted share option

I receive rsu’s from my company as part of my compensation package.

  1. Is it halal for me to accept it? I work as an accountant for a software company.
  2. If halal, how do I go about diversifying my shares so that my interest is not in one company. I currently “own” about 3 months of pay in shares (if the share price doesn’t change significantly).


May Allah bless you.

  1. In principle, RSU is fine if its in a halal business too.

  2. @ibrahimkhan might be best answering this one.

And Allah knows best!

I would diversify away using an Islamic fund. You can find a full list on our site iA.
