Selling An Item Placed As A Mortgage


Zaid took a loan from Amar. Amar asked Zaid to give him his phone as mortgage. It’s been 3 months and Zaid still hasn’t paid back the loan. Can Amar sell the phone to recover his debt?


If Zaid had told Amar that “you should sell the phone if I do not pay the debt by this date” then it will be permissible for Amar to sell the phone and recover his debt.
