Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Resolution No.(98) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:
"Ruling on the Statute of Al-Ballorah Assakhina Employees` Association"


We have received the following question:
What is the ruling of Islamic Sharia on the statute of Al-Ballorah Assakhina Association?
Answer: All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.
Having reviewed the statute of the above association, the Board is of the view that article four of the annexed statute must be amended. It originally stated, "A member of the association shall be responsible for paying the price of the commodity after examining it and agreeing with the seller on the price, and he shall not hand the money to the beneficiary whatever the case may be"
The Board believes that this article must be rewritten as follows: "The association shall deputize one of its members to purchase the commodity required by the beneficiary after examining it and paying its price to the seller. Once the association takes possession of the commodity, it shall resell it to the beneficiary." The Board have demanded this amendment because it isn`t permissible for the association to sell the commodity to the beneficiary except after purchasing and taking possession of it so as to avoid the suspicion of Riba(usury/interest), as indicated in the following Hadith narrated by Hakim Bin Hizam, "I bought some food and made food and made a profit on it (by selling it) before I took possession of it. I came to the Messenger of Allah and told him about that and he said: 'Do not sell it until you take possession of it."'{Narrated by Ahmad in his Mussnad(3/402)}. And Allah knows best.
