Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Date Added : 02-11-2015

Resolution No.(101) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies
 “ Sharia Ruling on Lying in Sale ”
Date: 4/4/1427 AH, corresponding to 3/5/2006 AD

Question:
Is it permissible for a trader to say that a certain item is made in Italy-for example-while it is either made in China, or made in China and shipped to Italy, or most of its parts are made in Italy and some of them are made in China?
Answer: 
The Board is of the view that a Muslim-whether a trader, a salesman, or whatever his work may be-must be truthful in all that he says and always tell the truth about each item that he promotes. It is forbidden for him to resort to lying and cheating under any circumstances. Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) said: “Truth leads to piety and piety leads to Jannah(Paradise). A man persists in speaking the truth till he is recorded with Allah as a truthful man. Falsehood leads to transgression and transgression leads to the Hell-fire. A man continues to speak falsehood till he is recorded with Allah as a great liar. “ {Bukhari&Muslim}. He also said: “ He who deceives isn`t of us “{Muslim}. And he(PBUH) added: “ A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim, so it is impermissible for a Muslim to sell a deficient item to his brother without mentioning that to him “{Bukhari}.
