Gambling

The Quranic expression is maysir (2:119, 5:90), but the term often used in Islamic law is qimar. All activities involving betting for money or property or undue speculation are prohibited in Islamic law. Most juristic discussions focus on defining precisely which activities are unduly speculative and hence unlawful.
