Resale of SWC tickets (Jamiat TVL)

Question:
 

I have purchased tickets to some games of the upcoming world cup. Am I allowed to sell them after adding a mark up?

The rules of the seller state that this is not allowed.


Answer:

 

In the enquired scenario, after purchasing a ticket, it will only be permissible to sell it to another person by asking for the same price it was paid for.

 

(Reference: Shaami 6/91, 29; Mahmoodiyyah 16/604 (Faruqiyyah Edition))

 

Note however that while this may be the basic ruling to the scenario (mas’ala), it should not be taken that attending such events is condoned in any way.
