A Kind of Riba [Interest] (Ahadith 1836 – 1842)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 341 :
Narrated by Salim
That his father said. “I saw those, who used to buy foodstuff without measuring or weighing in the life time of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) being punished if they sold it before carrying it to their own houses.”

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 342 :
Narrated by Tawus
Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the selling of foodstuff before its measuring and transferring into one’s possession.” I asked Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu), “How is that?” Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu) replied, “It will be just like selling money for money, as the foodstuff has not been handed over to the first purchaser who is the present seller.”

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 343 :
Narrated by Ibn Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “He who buys foodstuff should not sell it till he has received it.”

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 344 :
Narrated by Az-Zuhri from Malik bin Aus
That the latter said, “Who has change?” Talha said, “I (will have change) when our store-keeper comes from the forest.” Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab (radiallaahu `anhu): Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The bartering of gold for silver is Riba, (usury), except if it is from hand to hand and equal in amount, and wheat grain for wheat grain is usury except if it is form hand to hand and equal in amount, and dates for dates is usury except if it is from hand to hand and equal in amount, and barley for barley is usury except if it is from hand to hand and equal in amount.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 345 :
Narrated by Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) forbade the selling of foodstuff before receiving it. I consider that all types of sellings should be done similarly.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 346 :
Narrated by Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The buyer of foodstuff should not sell it before it has been measured for him.” Isma’il narrated instead, “He should not sell it before receiving it.”

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 347 :
Narrated by Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
I saw the people buy foodstuff randomly (i.e. blindly without measuring it) in the life-time of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and they were punished (by beating), if they tried to sell it before carrying it to their own houses.

We previously studied that reselling something before taking its possession is not allowed, because it’s like exchanging money for money –> interest.
Now we also know that it’s necessary to measure before selling the merchandise/foodstuff. It’s only fair. You must price it accordingly and the buyer will judge its worth once he has complete info.
