Sales of gold and silver

2222. If good is sold against gold, and silver is sold against silver, whether it is in the form of coins or otherwise, if the weight of one of them is more than that of the other, the transaction is Haraam and void.

2223. If gold is sold against silver, or silver is sold against gold, the transaction is valid, and it is not necessary that their weight be equal.

2224. If gold or silver is sold against gold or silver, it is necessary for the seller and the buyer that before they separated from each other, they should deliver the commodity, and its exchange to each other.
