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.

7 Rules in Debt collecting

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

In Islam, theres no deed that is wasted, even just by giving a small aid to others, including lending money to others that is sure to be returned. While we know that lending money for a short period will not decrease our wealth, aside from the propaganda of the disbelievers about devaluation of money over time (time value of money).

However, mostly the creditor are worried when their money is in other people’s hand. And Allah the Most Generous never waste righteous deed of His slave; even though the only thing that he sacrifices is his feeling and anxiousness over the credit, Allah will replace it with His reward.

Ruling of Gathering of Household Equipment

Assalamu’alaikum. May Allah bless you.

Ustadz, I’d like to ask. What is the ruling of holding a gathering of household equipment,  in which I as the host of the gathering provide the equipment. For example, a pan. The price of a pan is IDR 500,000. Thus, we make a gathering of five person for five months, and each member pays IDR 100.000 monthly.

The question is:

What is the ruling for my action, if I as the host – as well as reseller of pan- buy a pan from the supplier with the price of IDR 400.000, and I provide it for the gathering I created with the price of IDR 500.000? Is it permissible, bearing in mind that from that gathering, I receive monthly profit of IDR 100.000 from the price of pan?

May Allah reward you greatly.

The World is for you, not you for the world!

The World is for you, not you for the world!

Very strange indeed, if human pursues the world that was created for him, to the extent that it seems that he is the one created for it – protection belongs to Allah alone -, in which he slaves himself to the world with utter devotion, forcing his body and soul, sacrificing his relaxing and family time for it….to get what? He may loose it in a blink of an eye! He may go out of his home, never to return, or sleep on his bed, never to wake again, and these things happen for real.
