Praise be to Allaah.
studying the national program for buying and selling by instalments on the
website of the al-Raajihi company, it is clear that it is based on
muraabahah in shares, whereby the company (the bank) buys the shares that
the customer wants, then sells them to him by instalments, and the customer
is free to choose the shares that he wants to buy.
It says in
the advertising: … it gives the customer the opportunity to own shares in
the companies that he wants, in the amount he wants, then he pays them off
It is known
that some shares are pure (halaal) and some are mixed, and this company
deals in both types. What we believe in this site is that it is haraam to
deal in mixed shares.
this, there is nothing wrong with joining the national program for buying
and selling shares, so long as one only buys shares in pure companies, not
follows a list of the pure shares that exist at present, according to Shaykh
Dr. Muhammad ibn Sa’ood al-‘Usaymi:
It should be
noted that this list may be added to, or names may be taken off the list. It
is essential to ask about the shares of the company when wanting to purchase
them, to find out whether they are pure or not.
ibn Sa’ood al-‘Usaymi is also quoted as saying:
buying pure shares from al-Raajihi on the basis of paying later on, there is
nothing wrong with that.
