Question # : 11705


Assalamu alaikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatuhu! Jazakallahu khairan for the taking the initiative of reviving Islam ( through Tableeghi works and other activities). I was going through your reply for question 1471 Faiths & Beliefs Deviant Sects & Groups ( Link : 471 ) ( You have answered many questions in the same manner for e.g. 6516 Faiths & Beliefs Dawah & Tableeg) Instead of directing the questioner to the refutation book or some other source - it would be very helpful in clearing the misconception if the answer is provided then and there itself. This will save a lot of effort and time. We write to you scholars because we are not competent enough in Isalmic education - that we will ourselves sit and refer to each book and find out the details ourselves. I have learnt in Jamath that of the 6 adab, one is to acquire knowledge by asking. What is the ruling regarding selling of items at higher price e.g an item XYZ costs Rs : 100/- and I sell it at 10,000/-. Is this allowed? (Kinldy quote references) Awaiting your response. May Allah reward you for the righteous deeds. Ameen.

As per the Shariah, there is no limit of profit set in business.

من اشتری شیئاً و أغلی في ثمنہ جاز

?It is lawful if one purchased a thing and sold it on higher price.?

But, receiving more profit is against morality; therefore the articles should be sold with proper rate of profit, it is against morality to take extraordinary profit.

Allah knows Best!
