Crypto Day Trade

Is cryptocurrency day trading halal or haraam?

As in crypto, you received and give money or crypto immediately. Just on the spot. The moment I clicked on buy, my money deducts and I get my desired crypto and vice-versa.

I know about short selling. Its haraam and I dont do it, rather I do spot trading i.e. buy or sell on the spot and takes its possession (By possession I mean I can sell it keep it or do anything with it without anyone enforcing like in short sell)

As we do it on Exchanges (like money exchanger) fot example binance etc , it gives us and takes money immediately. And now I can do anything with my coins, can sell it can give it to someone else can use it to buy anything. It means I have complete possession of it. I am telling all this so if I am wrong anyone please correct me.

So my question is . Can I day trade on this ? Like buy one crypto in the morning and after few hours I sell it if its worth increased or keep it if not.

As DR ZAKIR NAIK said buying STOCKS for short term like few dsys weeks etc is SPECULATION and GAMBLING

So is this Speculation too ????? Please guide.

Thank You. May Allah guide us and grant us all Jannat-ul-Firdaus without the Hisaab.

Tuhr mutakhallil

assalamu Alaikum

Respected Mufti Saheb D.B

I have heard that Mufti Saheb has mentioned that the view of Imam Abu Yusuf Rahimahullah regarding Tuhr Mutakhallil has been developed. And the view of Imaam Muhammad has not been developed.

Can Mufti Saheb please explain this statement.

Also kindly provide a few examples where it will be difficult to follow the view of Imam Muhammad, due to his view not being developed?

kindly explain

Lying during studies and earnings

Assalam Walykum

I have started my first year in university as an architecture student. To get into this degree I had to submit a portfolio with a cover letter. The cover letter is one page showing my interests, career goals, why I want to study architecture etc. Because I was struggling to write this, I referred to another cover letter sample online from the same university. I used this person’s cover letter to write my own. I copied the structure and used the same sentences that this person wrote and changed it a bit so it fit my own cover letter. However, there are two sentences that I wrote that are very similar to the sample cover letter.
I reworded what the sample wrote, basically copying and not being completely honest. For one of the sentences I don’t fully remember if I reworded a few of the words from the sample cover letter or if I wrote it on my own.

But the other sentence, I know for sure that I basically just copied from the sample cover letter and just reworded it into my own and wasn’t fully honest in what I wrote.

I’ve been accepted into this course, however, now I’m wondering if this makes my income haram if I get a job from this degree in the future, because I’ve basically copied one sentence and maybe another one and included it in my own cover letter, and wasn’t fully truthful in at least one of the sentences that I wrote. Also Iike I mentioned at the start , I copied the structure and used the same sentence starters used in the sample cover letter.

I emailed the programme director before, to say that I had used the sample cover letter as a template and he said that he thinks it’s ok. But I think I should’ve told him that I copied the structure of it and copied and reworded one of the sentences from the sample cover letter that I don’t really mean.
and possibly a part of another sentence that I might have copied and reworded.

I’m really stressed out that this might lead me to be taken out of this course and am also worried that this might make my  income haram that I might earn later on potentially from this degree. Please inform me on whether my income would be haram and if I should tell the programme director that I did this.
Jazakallah

Use of CCD in moonsighting

AssalaamuAlaykum,

I am trying to find a ruling as to whether it is allowed or not to use a CCD (Charge Couple Device) for moonsighting. My understanding is that sighting the moon with naked-eye, binoculars and telescopes are all allowed however, I would like to know the specific ruling on the use of CCD’s in moonsighting. In simple terms, CCD is almost like an x-ray. The object cannot be seen by eye but a picture is taken to see the object. They are used mainly in the daylight when the moon cannot be seen by naked-eye, binoculars or telescopes.

Whilst the moonsighting issue is a different aspect, I would like to reiterate that my question is strictly related to the use of a CCD in moonsighting.

Jazakumullahu Khayra.
