A person came to me and asked me to give him 23,000 SR provided that in return he gives me a regular Datsun cab that only has a front seat; model 94. Is this transaction permissible?
It is permissible to pay someone a sum of money in return for having a car with certain specifications and this is considered as Salam sale (sale with advance payment). Since cars can have certain specifications, the entire price has to be paid in advance in the session that the contract is concluded. Also, the time of delivery has to be specified beforehand. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
