Praise be to Allaah.
It is permissible to sell by instalments for a price that is
higher than the price paid in cash, as has been explained previously in the
answer to question no. 13973
If the purchaser who owes money is late in paying instalments
that were due on a particular date, it is not permissible to force him to
pay any money that is additional to the debt, because that is riba which is
haraam, as was stated in a resolution of the Islamic Fiqh Council. Please
see the answer to question no. 1847
This is the riba of the jaahiliyyah, which the Muslims are
unanimously agreed is haraam. (During the jaahiliyyah) payment of the debt
would be postponed in return for increasing the amount owed.
Based on that, what the purchaser has suggested of
rescheduling the payments and increasing the amount of the instalments
because of the delay is a suggestion that is invalid according to sharee‘ah,
and it is not permissible for you to accept it, because it is riba which is
haraam, even if the purchaser agrees to it. You have to wait and give him
extra time until he is able to pay you back, as Allah, may He be exalted,
says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And if the debtor is in a hard time (has no money), then
grant him time till it is easy for him to repay”
If the purchaser has enough money to pay off the instalments,
but he is taking too long to do that and is delaying it without any excuse,
that is haraam for him.
And Allah knows best.
