Agustianto said that only thos who understand about the market, could do trading. It was aimed to avoid riba. Meanwhile, learning fiqh muamalah was a must for moslem. “It is because fiqih muamalah is the basic and crucial thing in Islam, and none is not involved," said he. In muamalat principes, it was stated that all kinds of muamalah are allowed. Meanwhile, the Islamic economics does not allow gambling, aniyaya, gharar, haram, riba, ikhtinaz or money hoarding, and bathil.
The muamalah principes were elastic and able to develop based on the era, so there might be any possibility that ijtihad would happen. But, basically those principes were for the human welfare. "So, in understanding fiqh muamalah, it should be accompanied by other sharia science approaches," added Agustianto. (rwp/nas/t_ris)
