Salam Brothers, Since I joined a German company (semiconductor domain), they granted me a number of share options for certain price. The company rules are that when I sell these options I have to pay the grant price and what I get is the difference (after tax of course). When the prices are lower than the grant price I will not pay anything to the company. And I have to sell the options within 6 years from grant date. Is this kind of options halal?

Assalam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,

Please help me understand "share options" and how they work and how the company invests its money.
