Hazrat how are you?
Is layby allowed in Islam?
In game they are promotional offers on layby. You pay a deposit of 20% of the value and then you pay the remaining cash within 3 months
2 situations here.
- They take your bank account details and will cut the money from your back account if you don’t pay them.
- They will keep the goods until you finish your payment
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
We have studied the Game Stores Lay-By agreement and have not found it to be Shariah compliant. It will therefore not be permissible for one to purchase any items on lay-by from Game Stores.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
