Minimum Holding Period for trading shariah compliant Stocks


I would just like to know if there is a minimum holding period for trading shariah compliant stocks. So is there anything wrong with buying and selling same day or same week? I use both technical analysis and fundamental analysis to derive my strategy.

Shukran for the help.

Assalaamu alaykum

According to the majority of scholars, trades can only be made once the trade is settled, in most instances, this occurs have after two business days.

Allah knows best

Okay Shukran for the response Mufti. And what about Bitcoin?

Bitcoin, as soon as it comes into your wallet, you can trade.

Shukran for the response.

I’ve checked my platform, Easy Equities (South African based). And this is what they say on the website:

" There is no minimum period that an EasyEquities client is required to hold a share for. You can sell a share immediately after receiving the trade note (by way of email) confirming the execution.

When you sell a share, it will take up to 5 (five) business days after the date of trade, for the proceeds of the sale to be paid into your account

This is in line with the JSE’s Equities Rules which currently works on a settlement period of 3 days after the date of the transaction (referred to in Investment terms as T+3) and the EasyEquities Terms and Conditions which make provision for a maximum of 5 business days for settlement to allow time for conclusion of our settlement processes."

So does this mean I wait 3 days or 5 days ? Shukran

Wa alaykum salaam,

It is not so much as a matter of proceeds being transferred to you, but the ownership of the shares being registered to the buyer and removed from you. If you can find out when this happens, that will be help in getting an answer.
