Binary trade

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


I wish to refer my previous question which was not answered. However the question relates to binary trade. By reading your response on Fatwa 30915 and Fatwa 31113 is it intended for such kind of tradings. An entity UKOptions claims that their trading is practicing “riba-fee policy” and also “hibah concept”. Kindly answer regarding its permissibility. Jazakumullahu khair. Wassalam.


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
