Online shopping

Q: What is the ruling on buying products online where one only sees the picture of the product? Also will it be permissible to sell one’s products online through a website or Gumtree and OLX classifieds and what conditions will one have to adhere to to make the sale permissible?


A: The sale will be valid provided the buyer is pleased after he physically sees it.

It is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
