Q: We would like your Eminence to advise us regarding using
Saudi Payments Network (SPAN).
For example, a person buys items from a store that cost 150 riyals, he presents the card to the seller who passes it through a machine and the required money is immediately deducted from the customer's account and is added to the seller's account before the customer leaves the store.
If the case is as mentioned, there is no problem in using this card as long as the buyer has a sufficient balance to cover the purchase.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
