You are here:



I have sold an item to a customer. He said he will pay in 2 or 3 daysí time. But after about a week he returned the item. I refused to take it as I need to clear the stock .Though it is not a high quality product ,the price is cheap and he accepted it when he bought it. He believed he can return it since he has not paid yet.Is he right?

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother,

No he is not right. You have the right to demand the payment from him.

What was the return agreement ?
Have you informed him that goods were not returnable or it was left to decide later ?

If you did not make any statement about returns then its your fault and you should take it back. And please remember in future not to sell any products in this manner in order to avoid friction amongst fellow muslims.

The prophet (SAW) said "Take to trade and commerce, because nine-tenths of the source of earnings is in trade and commerce"
