As-salamu `alaykum. My question is on usury.Allah has said in the Qur'an that usury is totally haram, and that anyone who defies this is in direct defiance to Allah. I have read and heard many scholars advising people to give away interest money earned in conventional banks to charities and the like without any intention of reward.Is that not already defying Allah?also, if interest is haram to consume, how can one give his or her poison to someone else?I have also read an article in which a scholar argues that if the interest money is left with the banks, it will strengthen the banks. Does Almighty Allah need your help to take that money to another place? Is that not defying Allah? Should it not just be left alone for Allah to decide the future of it or the financial institution? Jazakum Allahu khayran.
As-Salaamu `alaykum. Is it permissible to work in a non-Islamic bank in the technology support department? I am living in the U.S., and I am working in an interest-based bank. I would like to leave. Everything has become associated with Riba. Jazakum Allahu khayran.
I'm a Muslim, living in a non-Muslim land, and need to buy a house with a usurious loan. Is it lawful for me to do so or not? Please clarify in details, for it is a serious issue. Jazakum Allah Khayran.
Is it permissible to accept donations from usurious banks to support charitable projects?
As-Salamu `Alaykum, I want to ask you what is Riba? For instance, I have a bad car and I want to buy another one, since I live in the USA the only thing I can do is to finance one using interest, is this Riba?
Could you please furnish me with the Fatwa of the Fiqh academy concerning bank interests?
