(Fatwa: 136/136/M=1433)

If the dealing is to the extent of agreement and formal ijab-o-qubool of sale is not done then it is not lawful to sell it to someone else. And if you finalise the dealing by ijab-o-qubool at the time of buying land or house and pay some price of land with promise to pay the remaining price at a later time, then in this case you can sell it to others after having possession of it even before its registration.
