If the product that the customer needs is not present in my shop?

Question #345:

A brother sells building material and he have list of products from the factory. If a customer wants a product from this list which is not present in shop then he seeks that from factory and then sell to the customer. What is the ruling of this?


If a customer comes to you to buy a product from you, if it is available with you then give him and if it is not available with you then tell him to go and buy from other shops.

س- أخ يبيع مواد البناء. وعنده قائمة الأشياء من المصنع وإذا الربون يريد شيئا منها الذي ليس عنده هو يطلب من المصنع ويبيع للزبون. ما حكم هذا ؟
