The agent cannot buy for himself

A: If a person is deputized to sell a commodity, he should not purchase it for himself because by doing so he will be raising doubts about himself that he may not have offered the commodity for sale nor accepted the best price for it. To avoid all this doubt, and to preserve his reputation, he should not purchase it for himself. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
