Product Description

FROM THE BOOK: "The thoroughness of the Prophetic condemnation of usury which was made after the dawn of Islam, leaves no room for any part, however indirect, in the Islamic transaction. The Apostle of Allah cursed the receiver (literally, the eater) of interest, and the clerk who writes the bond, and the two witnesses thereof, and declared them all as equally culpable. Other traditions record that the Prophet (S.A.W.) forbade the barter of a heap of date of an unknown weight for a specified quantity. Similarly, Muslims are forbidden to sell the fruit upon their trees, before it is ripe, even when the two part les are willng to take the risk. Thus all that the Book of Allah and the Sunnah have prohibited of the transactions aims at the realisation of equity and at the prohibition of injustice, whether light or grave. These aspects according to Ibn Taimiyyah, include: "appropriation of the property of others unjustly, or by usury and gambling." Certain aspects of usury and gambling, in particular, which the Prophet (S.A.W.), has forbidden are for example: a) Selling of commodities or lands not possessed by the seller. b) Selling of animals still unborn. c) Selling of birds not yet hunted and of fish not yet caught. d) Selling the Musarrat, the ewe of which has not been milked for a long time, to impose on the buyer falsely that its milk is always abundant. e) Selling of commodities of which the defects have been disguised. f) Selling of commodities while allowing the buyer to touch them only, without seeing (or examining) them. g) Selling a piece of cloth (or dress) without exposing it adequately to the buyer. h) Selling of commodities haphazardly without weighing or measuring. i) Selling agricultural produce not yet ripened. j) Prearranging with a man to bid a high price for a commodity, so as to induce others to buy it at a lower (but still a high) price. k) Selling the fruits before they show any sign of ripening. 2 Added to all these
