    Salamalakum

    I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced working for a MLM organization? One brother wants me to join ACN Inc. it is the largest direct seller of essential services like home phone, internet, satellite, gas, electricity, etc.

    You join by paying a $499 fee. And then you recruit other people to join your team, and similiarly they recruit other people as well. You get 1% of the total billings for all people under you as well as your own billings. As you recruit more people you get 2-10% of all billings as you advance.

    Does anyone know if this is a legit business? Can anyone share their experiences?

    Jazakallah

    wa alaikum asalaam

    I don't know them, but it seems a lot like a pyramid scheme to me. I would steer clear.

    Employers hire people, you don't pay them a joining fee.

    Just my opinion

    Assalamualaikum, I never believe in MLM scheme. Only the earlier, pioneer, top ones get the benefits. The one who has just joined might not even get anything. Heard about it but most of the time it will not last long and you might never earn anything in return. Might as well forget about it. Just get into proper investment business where the returns is halal and it does not take advantage of anyone. Never believe in quick rich scheme. :)

    My Dear brothers and Sisters
    Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

    As we know ACN has been become increasingly Infiltrated in all communities but especially it has gone much in Muslim community in recent years due to largely Muslims having huge social circles and family links. Unfortunately due to many masjids ,scholars and religious peoples involvement in it gave it all-clear licence for general public . General public blindly followed on this perception that how this could be wrong though many fatwas regarding MLM schemes are available but there was nothing very clear and to the point judgement available regarding ACN .

    On the day of Judgement when people will see the punishment , And they will say: "Our Lord! Verily, we obeyed our chiefs and our great ones, and they misled us from the (Right) Way.(Verse 67 :Surah Azab).

    May Allah reward Sheikh Amjad Mohammed for spending time and giving 16 pages judgement on basis of Islamic sharia. Please read .All the information given in it and explained you should have seen if you are involved or experienced if you were tempted to join or any of your friend or acquaintance were involved in it .link below...

    http://www.irtis.org.uk/…/A%20Study%20of%20the%20legality%2…

    Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism) to be affected by Allah's Reminder (this Qur'an), and that which has been revealed of the truth, lest they become as those who received the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] before (i.e. Jews and Christians), and the term was prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened? And many of them were Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).(Verse 16 Surah Al-Hadid).

    My dears brothers and sisters if you were involved unknowingly then this is the time to make a judgement and ponder over this . If this make sense then and see what Allah says in Quran

    {And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).(2).
    And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a measure for all things.(3) .....and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him.(4)....and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will remit his sins from him, and will enlarge his reward.(5) } (Surah At-Talaaq)

    My dears brothers and sisters Allah says .
    O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allah and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth.(70) He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger he has indeed achieved a great achievement (71) (Surah Azab).

    but if it make sense and do not stop this see what Allah says .

    And when Our Verses are recited to such a one, he turns away in pride, as if he heard them not, as if there were deafness in his ear. So announce to him a painful torment.(verse 7 Surah Luqman)
    Who hears the Verses of Allah (being) recited to him, yet persists with pride as if he heard them not. So announce to him a painful torment!(verse 8 Surah Al-Jathiyah)
    My dears brothers and sisters all the facts ,issue and unlawful techniques used by ACN IR can be found out directly on YouTube which are clearly violating Islamic principles. (Reference can be provided on request) .

    My dears brothers and sisters just see any of their annual gathering ,function or general meetings then you would feel this is like a film premier with so much glitter ,glamour ,excitement ,attraction. It is selling you a dream. If it looks and tastes too good to be true, it probably isn’t. And if it looks too good to be halal, it also probably isn’t.

    If you agree with Sheikh Amjad Mohammed's judgement then please share with people who were trapped in this knowledgeably or mistakenly.

    JazakAllahu khairan katheeran

    What sheikh has said all can be searched and confirmed independently without difficulty from internet and YouTube videos uploaded by ACN IRs but if you require any reference but feel free to contact.
