Trading Living Animal by Weighing it

What is the ruling of selling living animal by weighing it, such as selling living cow or goat by weighing it?

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, amma ba’du,

In Fatawa Syabakah Islamiyah it is said that,

إن الأصل هو أن الحيوانات الحية من أغنام وأبقار ونحو ذلك لا تحتاج في بيعها إلى وزن، وإنما تباع برؤيتها إذا كانت موجودة، أو بأوصافها التي تميز بعضها عن بعض، بحيث تنتفي الجهالة والغرر

Basically, there’s no need to weigh living animal, such as goat, cow, and the like upon selling them, but it is enough to sell it by looking at it, if it is present on spot or by revealing its detail that differentiate it from others; the point is there is no uncertainty or trickery in it.

أما بيعها على الوزن فلم يكن معروفاً، ولكن الظاهر أنه لا محظور فيه، إذ ليس فيه مانع من موانع البيع، وعليه فلا حرج في شراء الأضحية بالوزن.

As for selling living animal by weighing it, it is a method that is less known to the society. However, we might conclude that there’s no prohibition regarding this matter. Since it contains no forbidden element in trading, therefore, it is no problem to buy a slaughtered animal by weighing it.

And Allah knows best.

Again, About Debt

about debt

In the name of Allah.

“O Allah, please ease and help me.”

In Question and Answer section of the site, we often received many whines about debt. Often too, some of those whiner told about the advice of shaman in their mails. Among them there are people who use the chapter Al Fatihah as their secret trick to be rich, or use recitation made by the “Kiai” (religious figure). Indeed, there are various ways people take to obtain money instantly when they are cornered.

Dear readers, probably it has became human’s trademark. When he is cornered, shari’a rules are much lesser priority. Even though he has to sacrifice his faith, he’ll do it, or anything; the most important thing is to solve the problem as soon as possible. Indeed, this is the portrait of a looser, whose patience is as paper thin, upon carrying trial that Allah has destined for him.

Ruling of Applying for Housing Credit via Bank

There are two ways of buying goods via bank:

Firstly, a muslim goes to a bank and tell the bank, “I want to buy a certain house or car.” The bank says, “We don’t have it. Please check out if there is something that suits you, tell us, and we’ll buy it.” Then he goes to find what he wants, and when he finds it, he informs the bank of it, and the bank buys it.

After the bank buys and has it, then the bank makes a transaction with its client and there is no agreement that ties the client when the bank hasn’t buy and own the goods. For example, the client doesn’t store some down-payment, or certain amount of money which some people called “administration fee”, nor anything as a compensation of bank’s willingness to help him in realizing his wish, and it is not allowed to sign any written agreement which stated about the ability to buy the goods after the bank owns it. These are not allowed until the bank has the intended house.

Ruling of Purchasing by credit, Selling by cash



Ustadz, I’d like to ask about the ruling of purchasing house or land, and what is the ruling if we bought a house and paid half of its price (the rest is still unpaid and without taking bank loan), then we resell it with a higher price than its initial price, and we gain some profits from the selling of that not-yet-paid-off house.. Is it considered as usury? Thank you very much. Wassalam.
