Salam alaikum was rahmatullahi was barakatuh,
Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.
It was narrated that Abu Nukhaylah al-Bajali said: I came to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) when he was accepting oaths of allegiance, and said: O Messenger of Allah, give me your hand so that I may swear allegiance to you, and stipulate conditions for me, for you know best. He said: “I accept your oath of allegiance on the basis that you will worship Allah alone, establish prayer, give zakaah, be sincere towards the Muslims and depart from the mushrikeen.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (4177); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Silsilat al-Ahaadeeth as-Saheehah (2/227).
I live in Saudi Arabia. I think I want to invest in USA/UK. So, is it haram to invest in those countries, because I am supporting the company which is located in a kaffir country?
Second question: Should I invest in companies in this Muslim country (Saudi Arabia) or in kaffir countries, like USA/UK? (NOTE: I don’t want financial advice, but religious advice. Like, is it “wajib” or “mustahabb” to invest in Saudi Arabia?)
Jazak Allah khair!
May Allah reward us all the highest level of paradise.
