Description of stock exchange:
The stock market, as an important economic institution, plays an important role in the aggregation of scattered and small assets and also provides the possibility of investing in large projects. In addition, transparency and speed of securities trading are features of the stock market.
The stock exchange is a market. Just as there is a market for buying and selling different commodities, there is also a market for securities trading, although there are certainly differences between the common market and the stock market.
The main task of the stock exchange is to create and organize a place for business meetings during which the members, i.e. the owners of the securities or their customers, can trade the securities at the opening of the hall, i.e. the main and public place of trading.
Given the comprehensiveness of Islam in answering new issues, in this class the performance of the stock exchange has been analyzed from a jurisprudential point of view.
