I had a business agreement with someone who agreed to introduce a buyer for a commission. In the meeting i told him that i will pay his commission after completion of the construction, to which he laughed and said nothing. 2 months later he is demanding his commission straight away. I reminded him of my terms that i will pay after construction is complete, to which he said he thought i was joking and averyone pays in advance. In Shariah do i need to pay him in advance or can i delay till the completion of the construction project as i had stated in the meeting?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Your question is not clear.
You refer to a buyer for a commission, then you refer to a commission after construction.
What exactly was the nature of the business and commission agreement?
