Halal stock screening

Sallams Mufti Adam.

I wanted to ask what is the best app or website to get halal stock screening for my shares?

Jazkallah Mufti Saab.

Also is Islamic city App okay to use?

I was looking into it while waiting for your reply.

Sorry I meant Islamicly*

Yes, that App is okay too.


Sorry to keep bombarding you with questions.

I went to a bayyan where i heard that shares need to be a long term investment in order to be not considered gambling. Like for example you can’t jusy buy and sell shares to make a quick profit.

So what timeframe would a long term investment be?

Also if you buy shares and after a month months the share price goes high which makes you a decent profit. Can you sell the shares?


Assalaamu alaykum,

What the speaker probably was referring to was day trading. A number of scholars oppose the idea of day trading as the transfer of ownership and risk is highly questionable in such trades. Therefore, you can trade after settlement T+2, that will make the trade permissible as long as the other Shariah requirements are met.

Allah knows best

Jazakallah , completely understand from a non controversial perspective to wait for settlement T+2 but in some instances due to sudden market dynamic changes , is it OK to sell before settlement as long as you have bought the share pending physical delivery ? For instance a Shariah compliant share had been bought on Friday and over the weekend some negative news on the company gets published , hence in anticipation of big drop , you sell on Monday at market open ?

If you do that, then you only have right to the capital amount at the time of purchase and not any additional gain.
