7 Etiquettes On Transactions (1 min read)

1. Do not be so greedy for wealth that you forget to distinguish between halal and haram. Furthermore, do not waste the halâl wealth that Allah has blessed you with.

Instead, spend it sparingly and on occasions of true necessity.

2. If a person who has been afflicted with a certain calamity decides to sell something of his because he is forced to do so (i.e. because he is desperately in need of the cash), then do not exploit him thinking him to be in extreme need.

Nor should you ask him to reduce the price of the item.

You should either help him or purchase that item from him at an appropriate price.

3. If your debtor is poor, do not distress him further. Instead, grant him a respite. Waive a certain amount of the debt, or better still, waive the entire debt.

4. If you owe money to a person and you have enough to pay him, then it is extremely sinful and oppressive for you to delay in fulfilling this debt.

5. As far as possible, do not take any debt upon yourself. If there is no alternative, then always be concerned about paying it back. Do not become neglectful in this regard.

6. If your creditor tells you something (with regard toyour debt), keep quiet and listen. Do not counter-attack him nor becomeangry. It is a very evil habit to conceal something that belongs to someone jokingly and thereby cause him distress.

7. Once a labourer has fulfilled his task, do not delay in paying him.
