Islamic Investment in Stocks

  • Mohd Ma’Sum Billah


There are many responsibilities specific to Muslims, one of which is the management of wealth. Through instruments or products in the financial markets, Muslims may manage their wealth in a Shari’ah-compliant way. Such business transactions are allowed in Islam as long as the foundations of these dealings do not contradict the Shari’ah and if those transactions are free from prohibited elements such as Riba (interest), Maisir (gambling) or Gharar (uncertainty).
