Q 6: What is the ruling on
selling gold after consulting one's family?
i.e. a person comes to buy gold and does not complete the sale until he consults his family at which time he may not pay the price. Could you kindly explain this issue?
Selling gold for silver or what is their value is not permissible except hand in hand. However, it is permissible for a person to take the gold or silver to consult his family or others and then buy it in the Islamic manner, or not conclude the purchase which is also permissible.
