Business Dealing

Assalamualaykum wrwb, I wanted to know if dealing in gemstone products that are mostly used for reiki, and healing practices is allowed or not. Almost 95% of customers use these products for spiritual-satisfaction, and healing beliefs whereas around 5% would use it for decorative purposes. Sample Product Photos attached:-

Worry Stones:- Also used to make wire-wrapped pendants by some people


Chakra Sets:-

Palm Stones:-

Pyramids:- Also used as a paper-weight/table decor

Tumbled Stones:- Also used to make pendants by some people

Gemtone Hearts :-

Spheres:- Also used as a paper-weight/table decor

Orgonite Pyramids:- Also used as a paper-weight/table decor

Mode Of Business: Wholesale (When someone asks about benefits of the stones and our products, we clearly tell our customers that we don't believe in it and we just trade these products). Online Retail (Listing pictures and description explains benefits that these people beleive in, it was just copy-pasted from internet sources without paying attention to what it means)

Please let me know if it is permissible to sell such products.

Jazak Allahu Khayran.



بسم اللہ الرحمٰن الرحیم

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

The only effective Authority is Allah Almighty, and the One who heals every disease is Allah (SWT). 

As a verse in the Holy Qur’an says:

"And when I am ill, It is He Who cures me" - Surah Shu’ara, Ayah 80.

Therefore, having a belief about stones that healing happens through them, or they offer spiritual satisfaction, then that is a false belief. The use of stones with such a belief is not permissible in Shariah.

However, if you use a specific stone as treatment, but with a firm belief that Almighty Allah, is the real healer, only then there is permissibility to sell such stones, and the earnings will be considered lawful.

لما قولہ تعالیٰ:’’ وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ

ولمافي حدیث ضعیف: إن التختم بالیاقوت الأصفر یمنع الطاعون۔ قلت: حدیث: تختموا بالعقیق؛ فإنہ مبارک۔ رواہ العقیلي في الضعفاء وابن لال فيمکارم الأخلاق والحاکم في تاریخہ، والبیہقي والخطیب وابن عساکر والدیلمي في مسند الفردوس عن عائشۃ رضي اللّٰہ عنہا، وکثرۃ الطرق تدل علی أن الحدیث لہ أصل، وروی ابن عدي في الکامل عن أنس بلفظ: تختموا بالعقیق؛ فإنہ ینفي الفقر۔ (مرقاۃ المفاتیح ۸؍۲۷۴ تحت رقم: ۴۳۸۸)

فقط واللہ اعلم بالصواب
