    According to the link below, the ‘Naya Pakistan’ certificates are structured as investments as opposed to loans, hence there’s no question of riba in them. One can freely invest in these certificates.

    I asked this question back in 2021. Now in a reply to question relating to zakat on these certificates you have related this investment to government saving scheme. Please advise if your opinion earlier where you said that there is nothing wrong with investing in These islamic certificates has changed.

    No it has not changed. I don’t know which reply you might be referring to. According to the web site link shared above this particular scheme is structured as an investment instead of a loan. Riba is only a concern in loan transactions. Generally government saving schemes are structured as bonds or loans and their profits are considered riba.
