Question by Luke: Gambling or Betting for education purposes in Islam?
I know Islam permits muslims from gambling. But, is it really called gambling if for instance, me and my friend bet for 5A’s in our final exam? He bets a ferrero rocher chocalate, and i bet a kinder bueno chocolate. If he gets 5A’s and i don’t, he gets my kinder bueno, but if i get 5A’s and he doesn’t, i get the ferrero. Is that in sense, really called gambling? Is it Haram? And can someone give me a hadith or a phrase from the Quran if it really is Haram? Thanks a lot in advance….
