Q. What is the ruling on buying government bonds? And is it permissible to deal in these bonds?
A: If you mean government bonds offered for sale to the public to raise money, there is no objection to taking part in lending to the government by way of buying these bonds. If the holder of these bonds wishes to sell the same to get his money back, either to another person or to the state for the same value or less, there is no harm in it.
