Forex Trading in Islam: Your views

ٱلسَّلَٰمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُ ٱللَّٰهِ وَبَرَكَٰتُهُ
Before I get into the main question, I just want to clarify the reason I'm asking for individual views, is because this is supposedly a "grey area", and that means there will be a lot of difference of opinion, and of course, with these things everyone will have their own opinion on it based on their research.
Now I've done a fair amount of research, asked those who do it for a living, Muslim and Non Muslims, some of those Muslims are not practicing, some of them are, some of them are even Hafiz, so I would say I've asked a rather broad spectrum. The reply I get from almost everyone is along the lines of "if you know what you're doing, it's like any other business, similarly if you jump in blind without any knowledge or experience, then it becomes no different to gambling". Another point people raise is, "if it was Haram then why do brokers offer Islamic/Shari'a compliant accounts?", and "it's not classed as gambling by law in any country, that's spread betting (which is untaxed, where in the UK it is taxable income as it's not seen as gambling)"
The reason why I'm asking now personally is because I've spent a lot of time and money working on/with algorithms, tested and trialed a lot of different methods to remove this "gambling" connotation as much as possible, and feel like I've achieved a satisfactory result. However, I've recently seen videos where it mentions that since there are no tangible assets behind this, and it is just purchasing contracts for whether this currency/stock will rise or fall, it becomes Haram.
So where does that leave me and the other Muslims who have been depending on this for a living for many years? Have we been earning Haram all this time? I have constantly prayed for Allah to grant me success and wealth (since we're not a well off family by any means at all) mainly so I can help my parents. Now that I'm starting to see success and progress I don't know how to handle it Islamically. is this progress and income a blessing from Allah? Or am I just thinking that it is when I have been wasting my time. For further clarification I have not been earning any interest, and have been giving regular donations to charity and the local Masjids.
Jazakallah Khayr.

The rough guide to the Islamic Investment world (in South Africa)

So this is my rough guide to Islamic investments within the South African Universe (it can apply globally, except my examples is all South African based). Hope it is informative and encourages halal investing.
Suggestions welcome
Section 1: Investment Universe 
  1. Islamic Bank fixed deposits
About: Invest your money for a fixed period (1 month up to 5 years). Get profit when period is completed
Pros: Reliable profit , Low financial risk, low Islamic risk : covered by a board of Shariah scholars
Cons: Low profit rates.

  1. Unit trusts
About: Collective investment - managed by investment company, protected by SA law, typically invests in equities, sukuks and property
Pros: Plenty of choice, Provided by registered Financial Service Providers, Sharia Boards , diversification
Cons: Typically High fees, .

  1. ETF
About: Collective investment
Pros: low fees, Provided by registered Financial Service Providers, Sharia Boards , diversification
Cons: only one option in SA, heavily weighted on Resources

  1. Shares
About: Pick your own stocks off the exchange
Pros: High profit potential,
Cons: Very Risky, No Islamic oversight (hence need to do your own screening)

  1. Property
About: Tried and test property
Pros: Stable Asset, Tangible, Straightforward, Zakah benefits,
Cons: High capital outlay, expensive legal costs (transfebond registration) , Not very liquid,
  1. Custom Wealth Solutions
About: Customized Wealth management and investments
Pros: Professional advice, custom solution
Cons: Available exclusively to high net worth individuals, Investment advise appears to be fee based

Section 2: Definitely not halal 
  1. Margin based investing: Margin = interest = haram. Also very risky
  2. Futures contracts: Shorting, going long, all CFD's and futures contracts are impermissible. Because a condition for a halal investment is that the underlying asset must be owned
  3. Forex: Or at least forex based on CFD's and margins. Buying dollars to travel should be perfectly fine.
  4. Stocks/Equities that primarily deal in haram activities: Gambling, pork, etc

Section 3: Grey Areas 
  1. Crypto ( Bitcoin ,etc) : In theory these should be more "halal" than fiat currency (what all money in the world is) however there are differences of opinion.
  2. Shares : There are grey areas : Most companies has an element of haram income (interest, etc). Scholars have devised ratios to to filter out "islamic stocks" from haram stocks (30-33% max debt, max 5% haram income, liquid ratios, etc). It is for this reason these stocks requires dividend purification.
However you should be aware of this before venturing into to stocks as you might not be comfortable with that thought (This also affects EFTs, Unit trusts, etc).
3 Easy Equities: Easy equities makes it cheap and easy to own equities. However I would at all times buy/sell only whole shares and not fractional shares. Fractional shares are done as a CFD (a bit different from a forex CFD). You get all the benefits of ownership such as dividends and capital gains on a pro rate basis. But you do not actually own the CFD until you buy enough CFD to get a real whole share. That being said, it is still grey, best to avoid fractional shares entirely
4. Halal Forex Accounts: Somehow these are marketed that way. Here's a link to (Islamic Finance Guru) who has a bit more knowledge on this. (Note: I am not affiliated in any way or get any benefit)
Section 4: Conclusion 
I sincerely hope this helps , and encourages to invest in the Islamic world.
Any ideas, inputs and suggestions welcome.


Disclaimer 1 : Corrections welcome, I am not a learned scholar, this is not financial advice, you bear the responsibility & consequences of your own decisions/investments
Disclaimer 2 : At some point FNB Sharia board quit , they subsequently hired a new board. They don't however make it easy to find who is in the board from their website. However the information can be found in news websites.

Question about Forex trading in the Islamic world

Hey everyone! Sorry If I am posting this in the wrong area but as a non-Muslim I am curious about Forex trading in the Islamic world.
What should a forex broker do to ensure that its activities comply with Shariah law, and what features should trader’s accounts have in this connection? Do Halal accounts give brokers any advantage over competitors?
I know there is a lot of discussion on this and how it is Haram or Halal and I just wanted to learn more about it.
