Anything which Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has stated to be a measured item and excess therein to be Haraam, such items will forever be regarded as measured items, even if people abstain from trading in them by measuring it, e.g. wheat, barley, dates and salt. All those items in which Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has prohibited excess due to their being weighed items, will forever remain as being weighed items, even if people stop trading in them by weight, e.g. gold and silver.

Whatever is not reported by Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), is dependant on the normal practice of the people. The quantitive description of an item will be recognised by the way in which people trade in that particular item. If according to the normal business practice an item is traded by weight, it will be regarded as a weighed item. Similarly measure and numbers (Kitaabul Buyoo).
