If the item is such that it is sold by weight or measure, then it is Haraam to eat or sell such goods until it is re-weighed or re-measured. [NOTE: The buyer must re-weigh or re-measure the item of sale at the time of sale. The seller cannot weigh the item before or after the sale in the absence of the buyer. It is preferred if the seller weighs the item in the presence of the buyer. Hence, when buying pre-packed weighed items, one must be aware that he is not buying the article by weight, rather he is paying for the pack / parcel, e.g. when paying R3.00 for a 1kg pack of sugar, you are not buying 1kg of sugar, rather you are buying that size pack for R3.00.] (Kitaabul Buyoo).
