Give Away Interest Money
The word Riba (Interest) is derived from a root meaning” increase” or “growth”.
It is Haram in Islam.Unfortunately, it is very common these days that we will receive ‘interest’ money from banks and building societies. Most of the time it is unwanted money, or unknowingly with a lack of knowledge deposited the money in a scheme where we receive interest. This is well established in the Qur’an:
“O believers, take not doubled and redoubled interest, and fear Allah that you may prosper. Fear the fire which has been prepared for those who reject faith, and obey Allah and the Prophet so that you may receive mercy.” (Surah Aal-Imran, verses 130-2)
If we consider Allah’s Guidance to be essential for success in the Hereafter, then the struggle to stay away from interest despite the prevailing system is our way of achieving Allah’s pleasure. It is difficult. But Allah promises Jannah in the life to come which is everlasting. so, we should ask Allah to pardon us and to overlook our mistakes. Because without His mercy we cannot succeed.
