We do not know of anything wrong with selling animals which it is permitted to sell, such as camels, cattle, sheep and the like by weight, whether they are alive or have been slaughtered, because of the general meaning of the words of Allaah (interpretation of meaning): “Allaah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba” [al-Baqarah 2:275]. And because when the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) was asked: What kind of earning is best? He said: “For a man to work with his hands, and every legitimate transaction.” And because there is no ambiguity or deceit involved in that. And Allaah is the source of strength. End quote.
