Inah (sale and Repurchase) Literally, ˜inah is a loan or an advance payment. It is said in Arabic: tana al-rajul (the man bought on credit). Technically, scholars gave different definitions to ˜inah due to their differing opinions regarding its forms, which will be mentioned later. However, the most famous definition given to it by classical scholars was: A situation whereby a person sells a commodity to another for a specific price with payment delayed until a fixed date, then he buys it back from the other person at a lower price in cash. However, Al-Mawsu'ah Al-Fiqhiyyah (The Juristic Encyclopedia) defines it on the basis of the essence of engaging in it: that it is a loan in the form of a sale in order to make the increase appear lawful. Or Technically: when one sells a commodity for a delayed payment and then buys it from the buyer for a lower price in cash. Some said: it is a loan in the form of a sale, to legitimize the excess. The majority of jurists have forbidden this sale, but al-Shafi and Ibn Hazm permitted it. See ISRA Islamic Financial System: Principles and Operations for further details.
