  • Can Interest Be Taken From Non-Muslims?

    Posted by $ohail T@hir on June 25, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    It is believed by some scholars that interest can be charged from Non-Muslims.

    It needs to be appreciated that taking Interest is prohibited from a human being, whether he is a Muslim or a non-Muslim because of the fact that it is inherently an unethical contract. Things which are unethical are prohibited whether they relate to Muslims or to non-Muslims. In other words, just as one should be honest not only with Muslims but also with non-Muslims, similarly one should also not be selective on the basis of religion in taking interest.

    Those who justify this practice refer to a Hadith. It should be noted that it is not sound and is also not found in the six major books of Hadith. Its content also contradicts the Quran.
