Ticket No.21 – Leniency in Trade

The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Allah The Most Great admitted a person into Paradise because he was lenient in his buying, selling, paying and demanding of his money back.”

[Al-Bukhari in At-Tareekh Al-kabiir]


This hadith shows the virtue of being lenient in trade whereby the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) mentioned that Allah granted paradise to a man who was lenient in his trade by fearing Allah in his buying, selling and loaning, also by being forgiving towards others if they struggle to repay their debts towards him and not pressuring them to sell their valuables in order to repay him.

And Allah Knows Best!
