The literal meaning of sale is "buying and selling" and in the Shari'ah term buying / selling goods for the purpose of trade by mutual consent is called "sale". In contrast, the word shara is commonly used, which also literally means "buy and sell", meaning that the two words are opposite. But the term sale means to take something out of one's possession in exchange for an agreed price and give it to another, and shara means to "take possession of something by paying the price." From the above brief description of sale and purchase it is clear that although these two words mean "buy and sell". But is usually taken to mean selling and buying. That is why in Arabic the seller is called "baiʾ" and the purchaser is called "mshtrī".
