Sahih Muslim

Book 10. Business Transactions


Chapter 1: Prohibition of Bai’ Mulamasa and Bai’ Munabanza

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) forbade (two types of transactions) Mulamasa and Munabadha.

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported like this from Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him).

Abu Huraira reported from Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) a hadith like this through another chain of transmitters.

A hadith like this has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) through another chain of transmitters.

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported: Two types of terrorisations have been forbidden (by the Holy Prophet), al-Mulamasa and al-Munabadha. As far as Mulamasa transaction is concerned, it is that every one of them (the parties entering into transaction) should touch the garment of the other without careful consideration, and al-Munabadha is that every one of them should throw his cloth to the other and one of them should not see the cloth of his friend.

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) forbade us (from) two types of business transactions and two ways of dressing. He forbade Mulamasa and Munabadha in transactions. Mulamasa means the touching of another’s garment with his hand, whether at night or by day, without turning it over except this much. Munabadha means that a man throws his garment to another and the other throws his garment, and thus confirming their contract without the inspection of mutual agreement. This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Ibn Shihab through the same chain of transmitters.


Chapter 2: Invalidity of a Transaction by Throwing a Stone

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) forbade a transaction determined by throwing stones, and the type which involves some uncertainty.


Chapter 3: Prohibition of Habal Al-Habala Transaction

‘Abdullah (b. ‘Umar) (Allah be pleased with him) said that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) forbade the transaction called habal al-habala.

Ibn ‘Umar (Allah be pleased with them) reported that the people of pre-Islamic days used to sell the meat of the slaughtered camel up to habal al-habala. And habal al-habala implies that a she-camel should give birth and then the (born one should grow young) and become pregnant. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) forbade them that (this transaction).


Chapter 4: It is Forbidden That One Should Enter into a Transaction on which One’s Brother Has Already Been Negotiating, Or One Should Purchase (in Opposition) to One’s Brother, Or One Should Cheat and Retain Milk in the Udder (in Order to Deceive the Purchaser)

Ibn ‘Umar (Allah be pleased with them) reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as having said this: One amongst you should not enter into a transaction when another is bargaining.
