Q: I have some money and I want to know if I can invest it in the stock exchange? Can I become a stock market broker?
A: There are contradictory views among the ulama with regards to trading on the stock exchange and in listed companies. Precaution requires that you avoid this. May Allah Ta`ala give you barkat.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Isipingo Beach)
