According to the Prophet of Islam ﷺ, “the best earnings are from a blessed sale and the product of a man’s own hands.” A sale would not be considered to be a “blessed one” if it has an element of deception or cheating of any sort in it; the character of a Muslim trader must be upheld at all times. رواه ابن ماجة وابن حبان وصححه الألباني, “Verily, a (true) trading is a trading that is based on the sense of consensual.” (Narrated by Ibn Maja, Ibn Hibban, and classed sahih by Al Albani).

IFAT (International Fair Trade Association) prescribes the standards that Fair Trade organizations must follow in their day-to-day work.8 The first principle requires transparency and accountability; as highlighted above, “And give full measure when you measure, and weigh with a balance that is straight” (Qur’an, 17:35).
