One of the basic principles of Islamic law is to balance between right and responsibility. Considering the provisions given since the first periods of Islam, it is seen that fiqh scholars take the balance of blessing and burden into consideration when making judgments. However, it would seem that the works which give sufficient information about the nature of the concepts concerned with that balance and how they are reflected their thoughts in the provisions are not penned. Our thesis aims to create a holistic perspective by determining the nature and position of the benefit-burden concepts, to be able to reveal the benefit-burden balance in financial transactions due to Hanafi fiqh, to specify financial actions which are suitable and not suitable for the benefit-burden balance
