Is Forex permissible?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
The issue of trading in currencies on the Forex market was critically and extensively researched by the Jam`īatul Muftīn (Council of Muftis) in South Africa. Majority of the members of the Council agreed to the impermissibility of trading Forex.
And Allah Ta’ālā Knows Best
