Ruling on selling and its legitimacy

The legitimacy of the sale was established as a method of exchanging benefits between people in the Book of God, the Sunnah of his Prophet, and the consensus of the Muslims. It is from the Holy Qur’an the Almighty saying: (And God permitted the sale and prohibited usury) . [1] In that noble verse there is a clear indication of the solution to the sale, an expansion of the servants and the achievement of complementarity between them. As for the Sunnah of the Prophet, the legitimacy of the sale has been proven in several hadiths, among which he said peace be upon him when he asked which gain is better, and he said: (The work of the man is in his hand, and every sale Justified) . [2] A justified sale is one that is free from fraud and betrayal. [3]
