Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Some teachers ask their students to do research and give the students grades for that. Is it permissible for me to do this research for the student in return for payment? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I have been quite ignorant for some time in many aspects of Islam. I am in the process of learning how to read the Qur’an, and I have learned how to pray. My question is that during my "ignorant" period I took OSAP to fund my university education. Now I am told by many friends that what I am doing is considered haram. If one cannot afford to pay for university and they take a loan like OSAP, is this considered haram? Jazakum Allah khayran.
I would like to know about Riba or usury in Islam. Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an that “those who devour usury will not stand except as stands one whom the Satan by his touch hath driven to madness.” (Al-Baqarah : 275). The Qur’an describes the grievous sin of dealing in usury by describing those who deal in it using the word ‘devour’, what about a victim of this action? Is it similar to devouring usury or it is not sin? As a Muslim I can't run away from taking a loan from bank, as we know that bank will charge us an interest. Are we sinners or not? And how can we escape from such bad dealing that is prohibited in Islam?
Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum.I borrowed some money in dollars from a friend, and I paid him back in Saudi riyals in installments based on the rate of exchange at that time (the time of the loan). What is the ruling on that? Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
Assalamalaikum, My father has three business in Dubai.In running those businesses he took the support of banks...later proper feedback was not put into business as funds were used in different purposes .Resulting in losses and debts.Now we realized that running business through banks support was a mistake and we are worried how to face our debts. Please enlighten this issue in the light of Islam as I don't know whether it is lawful to take support of banks to grow in business?
