Q: If I don’t have stock in my business can I sell the goods? Example is that a client comes and purchases a load of bricks and he wants it delivered to his house. He pays us for the bricks and delivery and though we don’t have it in stock we accept the money. We then collect the bricks at the brick manufacturers and then from there deliver it directly to the clients house. Is this permissible?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
