Having listened to the discussions on the subject,

Having recalled the Academy resolution no. 103 (6/11) on Maintenance Contracts,


First: Reemphasizing the above Academy resolution no. 103 (6/11) that “a maintenance contract is a contract according to which one party undertakes to perform regular or casual checking and mending of any rectifiable defect that a machine or any other object needs during a specific period against a specific pay.” The commitment of the maintenance provider may include work only or both work and materials.

Second: Forms of maintenance contracts, which the Academy resolved the postponement of issuing a resolution on them as per its previous resolution, remain pending discussion in a forthcoming session after completion of more specific research and studies on them.

Indeed, Allāh is All-Knowing.
