Ruling on Binary Options Trading

Q: What is the ruing on Binary options trading?

 

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومنه الصدق والصواب

A:  Please see the following link:

http://alqalam.org.uk/fatawa/investments-fatwa/is-it-permissible-to-purchase-stocks-using-call-and-put-options/

Binary options (all-or-nothing options) are simply another form of call or put options and are not sanctioned in Islam.

Mother and Son

​CONVERSATION BETWEEN A MOTHER AND HER SON:
Mother:

I fought with death when I was giving birth to you. I spent sleepless nights when you were sick and crying. I never ate without feeding you first. I bore so many pains to bring you to the stage that you are in today. How will you repay me my son?
Son: 

When I grow up, I will find a good job and earn lots of money for you so you can enjoy the pleasures of this world.
Mother:

Your father is doing this already and I do not expect this from you too. By the time you are earning I will be old and will not be in need of any worldly luxuries.
Son:

I will find a pious lady and marry her so she can cook for you and take care of you.
Mother:

That is not her duty my son and neither should you marry for that reason. It is not compulsory on her to do any service to me, neither do I expect this from her. Your marriage should be for you, a companion and a comfort for you as you go through this journey of life.
Son:

Tell me mother how can I repay you then?
Mother:

(With tears in her eyes) Visit or call me often. A mother only requires this much from you while she is alive. Then when I die give me your shoulder and bury me. Whenever you perform prayers, supplicate for me. Give out in charity for me. Remember your every good deed will benefit me in the hereafter so be good and kind always. Fulfill the rights of Allah SWT and all those around you. The sleepless nights and pains I took to bring you up was not a favour to you but was for my creator. He blessed me with you as a beautiful gift and as a means for me to attain His pleasure. Your every good deed becomes my repayment. Will you do it my son?
Son:

(Cannot speak and has tears in his eyes)
May we all be of those that are a coolness of our parents eyes and a means of their purification.
“Say My Lord be merciful to them as they brought me up in my childhood”

(Surah Al-Israa)
