INTRODUCTION

“The prophet prohibited the pebble sale and the gharar sale”

Abu Hurayra

What is Gharar?

  • Ghararhas many definitions which can be summarised under 4 headings:-

- Hanafi and Shafi’e

- Zahiri

- Most Jurists (Jumhur)

- Al-Sarakhsi

slide3

Hanafi and Shafi’e

- Gharar means doubtfulness or uncertainty.

- IbnAbidindefines Ghararas ‘uncertainty over the existence of the subject matter of sale’.

  • Zahiri

- Gharar means ignorance.

- IbnHazmdefines ‘Ghararin sale occurs when the purchaser does not know what he has bought and the seller does not know what he has sold”

slide4

Most Jurists (Major)

- means combination of both ignorance and uncertainty.

- accepted by the majority (Jumhur).

  • Al-Sarakhsi

- defines ‘Gharar in contract or transactionoccur when the consequences are concealed or unknown’ to the contracting parties.

slide5

Gharar occurred when:-

    • The consequences are totally concealed.

2) The probability of existence is equal to the probability of non-existence.

3) The non-existence of the subject matter outweighs its existence

prohibition of gharar
Prohibition of Gharar
  • Reliable sources have reported through a number of the Prophet’s companions that the Prophet (S.A.W) has forbiddenGhararin trading.
  • The Hadith is considered as one of the cardinal principles of sale's law and the groundnormof all rules governing Ghararcontract.
  • Muslim Jurists agree that excessive Ghararis prohibited as it impairs the validity of the contract.
types of gharar
Types of Gharar
  • Gharar is divided into two namely:

(i) Ghararsaghir- minor or slight gharar.

(ii) Ghararkabir-major or excessive gharar.

  • The ghararthat causes a contract to be invalid is major gharar.
  • In general terms major or excessive gharar is:

- an uncertainty which is so great that it becomes unacceptable, or

- it is so vague that there is no means of quantifying it.

slide8

More specifically excessive gharar arises out of one of the following:

- Asset or merchandise does not exist.

- Asset or merchandise cannot be delivered.

- Asset or merchandise is not according to specifications.

Prohibition of Gharar
  • The examples agreed upon excessive Gharar:

1. The “Pebble” “touch” and “toss” sale.

2. Selling the unborn animal without its mother.

3. Selling the fetuses and embryos.

4. Selling fruit before its emergence.

5. Selling the find of the diver in advance.

6. Selling the unborn animal (Habal-al-Habalah).

7. Selling the object of unknown identity without the buyer having the right to specify it.

8. Selling an object of unknown genus.

9. Deferment of the price to an unknown future date.

gharar and the invalidity of a contract
GHARAR AND THE INVALIDITY OF A CONTRACT
  • Gharar in a contract can refer to:

(i) uncertainty towards the existence of the subject matter. (ii) uncertainty towards the possession/ ownership of the subject matter. (iii) uncertainty towards the price.

(iv) uncertainty towards the payment of the price.

(v) ignorance (jahalah).

view of past islamic jurists
VIEW OF PAST ISLAMIC JURISTS
  • HANAFI SCHOOL

- AI-Sarakhsi - Gharar as something with unknown

consequences.

- AI-Kasani- Gharar that refers to suspicion. Gharar is the

potential risk faced by a person, with a 50%

possibility that the goods mayor may not

eventually exist (syak). To AI-Khasani, gharar

is the suspicion that a good may not exist.

slide13

For the Hanafi mazhab, such a trade is lawful because the buyer is given the right to make a choice after he has viewed the goods. This view is based on the Prophet s.a.w. hadith:مناشترىشيئالميرهفهوبالخيارإذارآه Meaning: "Whosoever buys something that has not been viewed, he has khiyar (choice to buy or reject) after viewing it".

slide14

SYAFIE SCHOOL

- Ghararas khatar (of high risks).

AI-Shirazi- Ghararas something whose condition

and consequence are unknown.

AI-Ramli- Ghararis something that has two

assumptions, positive and negative, with the negative being bigger.

AI-Sharqawiand AI-Qalyubi-

Ghararas something whose consequence is unknown and has two assumptions, positive and negative, the negative outweighing the positive.

slide15

ZAHIRI SCHOOL

  • Gharar also means ignorance and this can be when the subject matter of sale is unknown. This view is adopted by the Zahiri School alone.

- Ibn Hazm

‘Gharar in sale occurs when the purchaser does not know what he has bought and the seller does not know what he has sold.’

  • MUSTAFA AL-ZARQA' :

- Ghararis a fraud through words or deeds to attract someone to perform aq’d.

- Divided Gharar into 2 forms:-

i) GhararQauli

ii) GhararFi'li

view of present islamic jurists17
VIEW OF PRESENT ISLAMIC JURISTS

- Ghararqauli

a fraud committed verbally by a seller relating to price and method. For example, a seller says to a buyer: "The same product can be found elsewhere but we offer the lowest price." These words attract a buyer to perform 'aqdwith the seller.

view of present islamic jurists18
VIEW OF PRESENT ISLAMIC JURISTS

- Ghararfi’li

a fraud committed by a seller relating to the features of the product, by his action. For example, a shepherd who wants to make his goat saleable by displaying a l argepouch of milk. This would attract the buyer to assume the goat produces a lot of milk when it does not.

  • MUHAMMAD BELTAJI

- It is impossible for the buyer and seller to avoid gharar completely.

- 3 requirements in declaring something as gharar that can be excused:

i. The gharar is minor and small.

ii. Such trading is needed by society.

iii. The gharar cannot be avoided without masyaqqah(hardship) that is recognised

by Syara'.

CONCLUSION

Ibn Juza’in stated that:-

- it must be avoided as it render the gharar in contract as null and void.

- unless gharar is very minor gharar, it is tolarable.

conclusion28
CONCLUSION
  • Form of ghararor uncertainty prohibited in the Islamic is a vindication of the viability and infallibility of the Islamic injunctions that are derived from the Holy Qur’an and the Tradition of the Prophet.
  • But to the certain extent, it is permissible under the Islamic law as if it is a minor gharar.

“This is a kind of reminder that Man needs the guidance of his creator as he fulfils his role as a vicegerent of God on earth and without this guidance he is always subject to being lead a stray by his whims and desires or the limitation of his mind and experiences as attested to by the many failures of our time in all spheres of life”.
