In practical terms, when companies and businesses are making deals and transactions frequently, it is often not so practical to expect both parties to sign a Heter Iska each time. Therefore, we advise people to sign a Heter Iska Klali. Once a company, business or individual have a Heter Iska Klali, then all that is required is to insert a clause in all future contracts, stating: “This agreement is subject to the terms and conditions of the company’s/ business’s/my Heter Iska Klali, signed on the ………………….., a copy of which is attached” Once both parties sign an agreement/ contract with such a clause, it is as if they have both signed a Heter Iska specific to that deal.
