Q: A person comes to my shop with a traveller’s cheque (a traveller’s cheque is considered as cash because it is bought in lieu of cash) worth R5000 and he buys items worth 1000 and I take that check and give him 4000 back. Will this transaction be jaaiz?
A: It is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
