Forbidden transactions by concensus


Assalamu alaykum,

This is my next post from the “Real Deal” series inshallah, and I would like to touch upon a number of transactions that are forbidden by the agreement of the Scholars.

There are 8 types of forbidden transactions:

  • Selling a debt for a debt
  • Two contracts or sales in one
  • Selling upon the sale of your brother
  • The resident selling to the visitor
  • Selling impure and forbidden products
  • Selling during the time of the Adhan of Jum’ah
  • Selling the unknown or uncertain
  • Riba

(Inshallah, I will try to include the explanations for every one of them on my future posts.)

Why are these transactions prohibited?

In general, the following are the reasons why the transactions noted above are forbidden.:

  1. The contract is upon a commodity or to a person or in a time that is forbidden.
  2. That contract contains Riba.
  3. The contract contains extreme uncertainty.
  4. The contract goes against one or more of the goals and purposes of the Shariah in business.

And Allah knows best!!!
