Religious Opinion on Online Purchases

Arab Times, ‘Nothing is wrong in purchasing through Internet, social media’

"A number of clerks [sic] shared their opinions on purchasing through websites and social media accounts in an interview with the daily. Clerk Muhammad Al-Najdi said Islam allows selling and buying through the Internet provided there is adequate information about the product being sold such that the buyer knows the specifications and the price. He pointed out if the buyer discovers the delivered product is not the same as advertised, the latter has the right to refrain from completing the purchase transaction."
