I've been getting asked a whole lot of questions about that. Now as many of you know, I have, in the past, published a video, a blog post, that was called, "Is Bitcoin halal?" And in that video I mentioned that as of yet, I still haven't seen that Bitcoin is haram. I haven't heard from any sheikh (learned scholar) or any of the fuqaha (scholars)- I haven't heard a consensus where it has been said that Bitcoin is haram. I touched a little bit upon where you can buy Bitcoin in Saudi Arabia and we even dabbled a little bit with Bitcoin mining. However, as you all know, I didn't really get too deep into the sharia aspect of Bitcoin simply because I really didn't know. Now as many of you do know, as of late, I have been studying Islamic Finance. And now that I have finished my first round of studies I would like to share with you what I have learned. And this is where I now come with the, Is Bitcoin Halal Series. So that's the next series- that's the series that I have coming up next here on the Islam and Bitcoin Project.
It's going to be a series of blog posts and videos that talk about the permissibility of Bitcoin as it relates to the sharia and we're going to get into like four different blog posts, four different videos.
The first blog post, we're going to talk about currency. How does the sharia define currency and where does Bitcoin fall into that? The second one is going to be, trade. Like, so many people are asking, "Can I just trade Bitcoin? Is that permissible?" So we're going to touch on that. The third one is going to be on Bitcoin mining. And the fourth one is going to be on investing. And we may also touch a little bit on zakat to talk about whether Bitcoin is "zakatable". So those are the four blog posts that I have coming up in the next series that we are calling Is Bitcoin Halal Series. That is coming up with the first- the first blog post should be released in the next couple of weeks insha'Allah.
It's really good to see that there is a Muslim community out there that's really interested in this
I want to thank so many of you- I want to thank all of you actually. So many of you have been reaching out to me, giving support. Giving a thumbs-up. Sharing the content. Checking it out. Talking about it on different websites. So, it's just awesome to see that so many of you are involved and it's great to see that there is a community out there that wants to see where this new technology- what's the potential for this new technology- not just with the ummah but with humanity at large. Taking a look to see how it can be a benefit to, again, to humanity at large. So it's really good to see that there is a Muslim community out there that's really interested in this. So, like I said, I have this series coming up. Please just stay tuned and...yeah, that's it. Like I said, the first blog post, first video, should be coming up in the next couple of weeks.
I want to wish all of you a beautiful, blessed, happy, safe Ramadan. Please keep me in your du'a, and as always, I leave you in the way that I greeted you, assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Ma'salaama.
