Mixing people’s gold when working it
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What is the ruling on one who hands over his gold to a goldsmith to work it, and his gold may be mixed with the gold of others when the gold is melted, but when he takes it back from the goldsmith he gets the same weight of gold as that which he handed over?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.
The goldsmith should not mix people’s gold together; he should keep it all separate if the standard of the gold varies.
But if there is no difference in the standard of the gold, then there is nothing wrong with putting them together because it does not do any harm.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
