السلام عليكم

In a close by town there is a strawberry farm where visitors pay a set entrance fee and are allowed to pick and eat as much or as little of strawberries as they want. The amount of the strawberries picked and eaten is not known to the seller to any stage.

Is this permissible?

(Question published as received)


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the most Merciful.

The ambiguity in the quantity of strawberries that are picked and eaten by the customers is not such that it leads to dispute. Hence, it is permissible to visit the farm to pick and eat strawberries in the manner described by you.

And Allah knows best
