Purchasing a Coupon Code and Re-Selling it at a Higher Rate

Answered by Ustadh Omar Popal


Is it permitted to purchase a coupon code and resell it at a higher rate?


Wa Alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

May Allah, Most High, reward you for your desire to increase in earning a Halal living.

It is permissible to purchase a product and resell it at a higher rate. As for using multiple coupons in a transaction that stipulates only using one coupon, this would be impermissible as it goes against the conditions stated by the seller.

If the purchaser of a product does not fulfill the conditions placed by the seller, then the transaction becomes annulled and impermissible. (Maydani, Lubab fi Sharh al-Kitab)

Know that Allah Most High will place blessings in your wealth as long as you follow his rule. The principle in regards to wealth is to seek blessing in wealth (baraka), not necessarily more wealth.

And Allah alone knows best,

[Ustadh] Omar Popal
