Pearl of Wisdom

when an atheist asked him about the science of the stars [i.e. astrology] said, 'It is a science whose benefits are few and whose harms are many... an astrologer contradicts Allah in His knowledge, claiming he is refuting Allah in His fate over His creation.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
It can be understood from these traditions that the science of stars that is prohibited is not astronomy that exists in this present time, but rather it is the study of stars that looks into the effect of stars on the fate of a person and foretelling future events through observing the planets in that they themselves effect human beings.

Subject: property investment in Islam
Question: What is the most common view on property investment, which is correct?

Sorry if vague, looking for a general answer though. Thank you
Answer: Bismillah

Salaam Alaikum. It would be nice if the question was a bit more clear.
If what is meant by property investment is to invest in property in order to obtain income through the rise in property value, this is allowed.
If what is meant is investing ones funds in different investment opportunities, generally speaking this would be permissible. However, there are a long list of rules pertaining to it which cannot be explained in one email. If you have questions regarding specific forms of investment, for example those involving interest, etc. please send them our way.
Keep us in your prayers.
