Sarf

Sarf (Money Exchange): Literally: to turn; turn away; spend; sarrafa: to shift something from one state to another; insarafa: to leave. Technically: a sale of money for money; for example, to sell gold for gold or for silver, or to sell gold or silver for base-metal coins. Malikis define sarf as a sale of one medium of exchange for another. If the exchange is of the same medium of exchange, for example, gold for gold or silver for silver, they do not call it sarf; rather, it is murabalah if the counter-values are exchanged by weight. If they are coins, and the exchange is by number and face-value, the exchange is called mubadalah. See ISRA Islamic Financial System: Principles and Operations for further details.
