Abstract This article examines how gharar can infect a construction contract and if and how the extension of time and additional payment clauses can operate to negate the effect of gharar, and whether such provisions are compliant with the relevant articles of Law No. 1, 1987. This is done by identifying how gharar can infect a construction contract, reviewing the applicable laws that apply with respect to a construction contract and then the relevant provisions of FIDIC, Employer’s design forms of Contract.
