Stocks are rated "questionable" for one of two reasons:
- The company operates in an industry that falls into a gray area, prompting differing opinions among scholars on its permissibility. Some examples include advertising platforms that allow customers to promote impermissible products or services, supermarkets that sell pork or alcohol, and gaming companies with objectionable content.
- There is insufficient public information disclosed by the company to make a confident determination on whether it complies with shariah principles. More transparency is needed to remove ambiguity.
In both cases, we recommend users to exercise caution and do their own research before investing.
