  • Hadith To Not Sell Foodgrain Until One Has Taken Possession Of It

    Posted by Fahad Nawaz on June 27, 2022 at 3:39 am

    Assalamoalaikum brothers,

    I have a question regarding the Fatwas of various Ulema on various business deals considered Haram on the basis of below Sahih Muslim Hadith 3845 “Ibn ‘Umar (Allah be pleased with them) reported Allah’s Messenger ( ‌صلی ‌اللہ ‌علیہ ‌وسلم ‌ ) as saying,: He who bought foodgrain should not sell it until he had taken possession of it.”

    Is there anywhere Javaid Sahab explained the core problem mentioned in this Hadith, the context of this Hadith and how does it link with Surah Araf Ayat below.

    قُلۡ اِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ رَبِّیَ الۡفَوَاحِشَ مَا ظَہَرَ مِنۡہَا وَ مَا بَطَنَ وَ الۡاِثۡمَ وَ الۡبَغۡیَ بِغَیۡرِ الۡحَقِّ وَ اَنۡ تُشۡرِکُوۡا بِاللّٰہِ مَا لَمۡ یُنَزِّلۡ بِہٖ سُلۡطٰنًا وَّ اَنۡ تَقُوۡلُوۡا عَلَی اللّٰہِ مَا لَا تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ ﴿۳۳﴾

    کہہ دو، میرے پروردگار نے تو صرف فواحش کو حرام کیا ہے، خواہ وہ کھلے ہوں یا چھپے [338] اور حق تلفی اور ناحق زیادتی [339] کو حرام کیا ہے اور اِس کو کہ تم اللہ کے ساتھ کسی کو شریک ٹھیراؤ، جس کے لیے اُس نے کوئی سند نازل نہیں کی [340] اور اِس کو کہ تم اللہ پر افترا کرکے کوئی ایسی بات کہو جسے تم نہیں [341] جانتے۔

    Please share detailed response if possible.

    JazakAllah for helping!

      JazakAllah brother for sharing the details and how the issue links in Quran verse.

      I wanted to clarify further, the Hadith in question specially the word “possession”.

      Now a days, we have various businesses in which dealers sells items from central warehouses without taking possession. They just sell goods and take commission whereas central warehouse does the rest. For example Amazon, Wish etc. even the brokers of loan schemes and mortgage etc.

      Therefore my further clarifying questions are

      Is this Hadith directing towards the evils you mentioned in the previous reply or Is the core problem mentioned in this Hadith is “possession”?

      JazakAllah
