Earnings Gained From Forex Trading

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed bin Mohamed Umarji


Someone asked me the question, they didn’t know forex trading was haraam and they were trading. Initially, they lost money on one trade but made it back in another trade. Are they still allowed to keep that money?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


The money that was earned through forex which is shariah non-compliant should be given away in charity without the intention of reward.1

Only Allah knows best
