As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuhu
Day trading is defined as the buying and selling of a security/stock within a single trading day. Once the stock owned by the shareholder is sold, it does not belong to him. The repurchase of the stock at a lower price is a separate and completely new transaction. Day trading is permitted provided the underlying traded stock is Shariah Compliant.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
