The development of e-commerce continues to increase from year to year following the development of information and communication technology. E-commerce has had a significant impact on various sectors. E-commerce can reduce the flow of human traffic but increase the flow of goods traffic. In the modern era, humans have felt comfortable with this e-commerce. Just by being at home, various types of needs can be ordered through an online application and the items needed arrive at the buyer's house. For companies, e-commerce can improve efficiency and productivity. For the community, e-commerce can help increase economic growth and business opportunities. But at the same time, it poses challenges and problems in terms of security and trust. And is e-commerce not against Islamic law? This study examines how Islamic fiqh views e-commerce or online shop businesses whose data is obtained from related journals in 2012 – 2022. The method used in this study is the Systematic Literature Review (SLR) method. The SLR method is used to identify, review, evaluate, and interpret all available research with topic areas of interest to phenomena, with specific relevant research questions. The result is e-commerce is identical to the as-salam trade (buying and selling in fiqh muamalah), namely the purchase of goods received after payment is made up front in cash and is considered to meet the requirements of as-salaam.
