Cancelling A Transaction If The Buyer Does Not Pay


Zaid sold an item to Amar and said that if you do not pay me by the end of this month then our transaction is cancelled. Is this permissible?


Such a transaction is permissible. If Amar doesn’t pay by the end of the month then the transaction will terminate.
