Selling Goods Before Their Possession

I import goods for trade, then I sell them before they arrive and I receive them. What is the ruling on that?

Selling goods before they arrive is not permissible, because the Prophet (PBUH) forbade selling goods in the place where they were bought, until the merchants have taken them to their own place. So it is essential first to take possession of them, then you can sell them. As for selling them when they are in another country, and you do not know whether they will arrive in good condition or not, this is not permissible.
