The Real Deal "And Allah has permitted trade, but forbidden riba" [AlBaqarah: 275] One of the most difficult and confusing issues to Muslims now a days are the matters pertaining to the rulings of buying and selling. With trade and commerce having expanded with such rapid force, many are searching for what Islam has to say about it all.
