There is no doubt that among the authentication and insurance contracts is guarantee contracts. An example of it is the contract of transfer. Guarantee may be held in debt, in self-ensuring or material ensuring. Guarantee is permissible and allowed in Islam in order to preserve the rights. The guarantor, sponsor and leader all make the same sense for the entire scholars. Allaah the Almighty says: {And those who brought him carrying a camel and I am the leader} (Yusuf: 72), Ibn Abbas said: the leader is guarantor or sponsor.


Definition of Guarantee

Guarantee in Arabic language means: commitment.


Terminological definition of Guarantee: scholars say that the guarantee contract and the contract for the sponsorship are synonyms meaning the commitment to the fixed right towards other's disclosure like ensuring the debt, or bringing the concerned person like self-ensuring, or handing over guaranteed material.


The guarantee is then: annexation of guarantor's disclosure to the concerned person's disclosure in claiming self, debt or material.

Jabir bin Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with them, said: A man died and we prepared for burying, and then we brought him to the Messenger of Allaah "peace be upon him" to pray for him, we said: Will you pray for him? He - peace be upon him - stepped one step, then said: «Is he holding a debt? » We said: two dinars, He - peace be upon him - went away, then Abu Qatada guaranteed the two dinars, so we went back to the Messenger "peace be upon him" and Abu Qatada said: The two dinars is on me, and the Messenger of God "peace be upon him" said: «God has fulfilled debtor's right, and the death is now innocent of them? » He said: Yes, then the Messenger prayed over him, then he said two days later: «What happened to the two dinars?» I said, but he died yesterday, he said: I returned to him the next day and said: I paid O Messenger of Allah, the Messenger of Allah said, "peace be upon him": «now  you have saved yourself» Narrated by Ahmad in his Musnad Graded as authentic: (14590), and Haakim graded it sound in Mustadrak: (2346), and Mundhiri classed it in Targueeb and Tarheeb.
