TRUST AND JUSTICE: SECRET COMMUNICATION IN MUAMALAT TRANSACTIONS

Nor Asiah Yaakub, Norailis Ab. Wahab

Abstract


In Islam, business or muamalat is one of nine sources of income of the ummah. Muslims are free to engage in trading as long as they follow Islamic principles. Malaysian muslims’ businesses expand tremendously for the past ten years. One of the business practices which receive lack of attention is secret communication. This technique is applied by sellers in Pantai Perbisik through whispering technique and Facebook via private message. This paper is conceptually discussed on the application of secret communication in online and offline transactions. Two Islamic business principles were emphasized in the discussion, which are trust, fair and justice. This study hoped to give exposure towards secret communication in a business and could deposit the emptiness in a current body of knowledge particularly on muamalat.
