LAY-BY – Game Stores


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.

  1. They take your bank account details and will cut the money from your back account if you don’t pay them.
  2. 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
