Therefore, other things such as precious stones, cattle heads etc. cannot be sold through the contract of Salam because every stone or individual animal is normally different from the others. vi) It is necessary that the commodity which is the subject of Salam contract is normally expected to be available at the time of delivery. vii) Salam cannot be effected in respect of things which must be delivered on spot. Examples are exchange of gold with silver or wheat with barley where it is necessary according to Shariah that the delivery of both be simultaneous. viii) Salam cannot be tied to the produce of a particular farm, field or tree. ix) In a Salam transaction, the buyer cannot contractually bind the seller to buy-back the commodity that will be delivered by the seller to the buyer. However, after the delivery is effected, the buyer and the seller can enter into a transaction of sale, independently, with their free will. x) In Salam transactions the buyer shall not, before taking possession (actual or constructive) of the goods sell or transfer ownership in the goods to any person.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
