Is Forsage halal ?

Question:

As a Muslim, is Forsage haram or halal?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

Regarding the Islamic legal ruling of cryptocurrency, the Darul Ifta of Darul Uloom Deoband issued a comprehensive fatwa. The crux of the fatwa is as follows: “In summary, Bitcoin, or any other digital currency, is merely a presumed currency, and it is not an actual currency. Additionally, the foundational qualities of a real currency cannot be found in any digital currency. Furthermore, there exist elements of gambling and interest in digital currency trading. Thus, it is impermissible to trade via Bitcoin or any other digital currency. In the like manner, to trade using Bitcoin or any other digital currency, just as Forex Trading, it is prohibited; thus, one should abstain from this trade.” (Bitcoin ki Haqiqat aur uska Shari Hukm with reference to the fatwa of Darul Uloom Deoband: p. 38 [Ethical Business Consultants]). That being said, you should avoid executing any transactions that involve cryptocurrency.
