Contracts with family members before buying/selling

Asalam Alaikoum,

My father would like me to purchase a car for him to sell.

I was thinking of writing up a contract beforehand - is it recommended in this context?

If I’m being honest, I feel awkward asking my father to sign a contract, however, I would feel much more comfortable if I did. Can you recommend any templates or suggest what essential information needs to be in the contract? What can and can’t be stipulated perhaps.

Jazak Allah.

Wa alaykum salaam,

A transaction does not require a written contract. If there is immediate payment, there is no real need. If it is a debt transaction with part payment, then I would recommend a written contract.

A simple sale agreement will be acceptable.

Allah knows best
