Imams lash out at unscrupulous traders

Islam forbids all forms of fraud, whether in businesses, muamalah (Islamic commercial transaction law) or deals. However, there are people in the society who resort to trade tricks to make a profit, said religious authorities in the Friday Sermon.

The Imams cited selling faulty items, selling food past their expiry dates, tweaking the scales to hike up the weight of a product, mixing fresh produce with spoilt ones, concealing small or spoilt goods by covering them with larger or fresher products, and adding dubious meat with certified Halal one as examples of unscrupulous conducts.
