The basic principle regarding speculation is that the speculator incurs any losses, while the other party incurs nothing unless he commits an infringement or is negligent in safekeeping the commodity. In fact, loss is a deficit of the capital which may be born only by the owner of the capital and no one else will bear it. Both parties may share only profits according to their agreement. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
