The Ruling for Selling
Selling is a permissible contract. According to the Quran, the Sunnah, and consensus. Allah says: (And Allah has permitted trade.) [Al-Baqara:275]
The Wisdom Behind the Permissibility of Selling
1- A person needs what others have. For example, food, drink, clothing, housing, and so on, and the owner will not give them without compensation. Therefore, through selling, everyone can get what they want. The seller receives the selling price, and the buyer gets the commodity he needs.
2- Selling helps to preserve people's lives in the best way possible because a person may not be able to meet his needs except by buying.
3- Selling prevents stealing, taking things by force, fraud, and other things that corrupt society; this is because a person can fulfill his needs by paying for the things he needs.
