Q: I live in muscat. I bought my car on hire purchase. The total price of tyre car is 8000 rials but on hire purchase its 8500 rials. So firstly is this halal?
Secondly. Last month I couldn’t pay the car installment due to eid and ramadhaan so now they told me that I have to pay 5 rials to postpone that installment in the future so is this halal? The installment will be the same but I will have to pay 5 rials to delay this installment. Is this halal?
Secondly I bought a credit card and if I pay the money used by the card in 52 days then no interest will be charged but I have to pay a small amount
monthly that is for the card not for the money I use from the card so is this halal?
A: If this price was confirmed from the inception of the sale then the sale is valid.
This is pure interest.
It is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
