Sales Fatawa / Difference between selling gold and selling dates.

Difference between selling gold and selling dates.

I would like to ask regarding the shari’a principle related to interest which says: “wet dates may not be sold for dry dates, and something pure may not be sold for something mixed” does this include not selling gold21 for gold18?

الفرق بين بيع الذهب وبيع التمر


Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

To proceed:

That is not included under the principle because no matter how the gold content varies, it must be equal and this is achieved by similar weight. However, wet dates reduce their weight by becoming dry; hence they are not sold for dry dates until they become dry.

Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Mosleh
