There is a merchant
who imports spices (Part No. 13; Page No. 21) and building materials. He does not import such consumer goods as rice, corns, sugar, flour or cloth and does not deal at all in religiously prohibited goods.These commodities are quite profitable. Some items achieve double their value, some achieve more than that, while others achieve less profits. In addition, there are damaged goods that are not of the least benefit. There are still other goods that remain unsold for four years. However, with the help of Allah, we pay Zakah (obligatory charity) due on goods every year. Moreover, all our sale contracts are based on mutual consent between the seller and the purchaser in cash. We do not use deception or false oaths to market goods, praise be to Allah. Furthermore, the questioner has to pay annually shop expenses of about 30,000 riyals. What is your opinion? Please, I want a detailed answer and Fatwa (legal opinion issued by a qualified Muslim scholar), may Allah reward you with the best. Is gaining profits as such permissible? Or, is the questioner sinful?
If the reality is as you have mentioned, his profits are lawfully gained and he is not sinful, In Sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills).
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
