Nasihah (Advice): Auctioning in Islam
 
Anas Bin Maalik Radhiallahu Anhu reports that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam sold a saddle blanket and a drinking bowl. Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: Who would buy this saddle blanket and drinking bowl? A man said: I will take them for a Dirham. Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: Who will give more than a Dirham? Who will give more than a Dirham? A man agreed to give two Dirhams, so Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam sold it to him. (Tirmidhi)
