(Al-Baqarah: 278) Time of Revelation: Ahadith of Prophet Peace Be Upon Him: 23 . Fear from Allah and leave whatever is from Riba.Riba (Interest) O’ Ye Who Believe. if you are (true) believers.

RIBA (Interest) “The interest which you give to increase the wealth of people. will have no increase with Allah: But that which you lay out for charity. seeking favor of Allah (He will increase): it is these who will get a recompense multiplied.” Ar Rum 39 (First Revelation) 24 .

RIBA (Interest) • “Because of their abuse. We have prepared a painful torment for those of them who disbelieve.” An Nisa 160-161 (Second Revelation) 25 . we forbade the Jews good things which were formally allowed to them: because time after time they debarred others from the path of Allah: Since they practice Riba although they were forbidden and cheat others of their possessions.

doubling its rate many times.RIBA (Interest) “O’ believers. and you will prosper. devour not Riba.” Al-e-Imran 130 (Third Revelation) 26 . Fear Allah.

” Al-Baqarah 275 (Fourth Revelation) 27 . But he that pays no heeds shall be among the people of fire and shall remain in it forever. But Allah has permitted trading and forbidden usury.RIBA (Interest) Those who devour Riba shall rise up before Allah like men whom Shaitan has demented by his touch: for they claim that trading is like usury. He that receives an admonition from his Rabb and mends his ways may keep what he has already earned: his faith is in the hand of Allah.

He bears no love for the ungrateful sinners” Al-Baqarah 276 (Fourth Revelation) 28 .RIBA (Interest) “Allah has laid His curse on Riba and blessed charity with increase.

if you are indeed a believer. then you are warned of the declaration of war from Allah and His Messenger. But if you turn back you shall have your principal. Fear Allah and give up what remains of your demand for interest.RIBA (Interest) “O you who believe.” Al Baqarah 278-279 (Fourth Revelation) 29 . Deal not unjustly and you shall not be dealt with unjustly. If you do not.

declared: Interest claim in respect of transactions during the days of ignorance are null and void and would not be claimed.RIBA (Interest) • Al-Baqarah 278-279 • If you are indeed believers: Prove your claim with your deeds and actions. To begin with. we forego the entire interest amount due to my uncle Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib (rt) 30 . which is called the charter / blue print of Islam. • Islam emphasis on justice: Deal not unjustly and you shall not be dealt with unjustly. Prophet (SAW) in his last sermon at Hajjat-ul-Wada. • After the revelation of this verse.” • Principle amount should be paid back.” • Threat in the strongest words: Not used for any other crime.

” “Every Premium paid over and above the Loan is Riba” 31 .RIBA (Interest) • What is Riba: – Riba means any excess compensation over and above the principal which is without due consideration. “Every loan that draws interest is Riba. by Ali Ibn Abi Talib. It’s a premium paid to the lender in return for his waiting as a condition for the loan. – In the words of Prophet (SAW).


Riba – Selected Ahadith
– By Hazrat Jabir ibn-e-Abdullah (RT): The Prophet peace be upon
him, cursed the receiver and the payer of interest, the one who
records it and the witnesses to the transactions and said, “They
are all alike (in guilt).”
(Muslim, Tirmidhi and Musnad-e-Ahmad)
- By Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (RT): The Prophet peace be upon him,
said, Riba has seventy segments, the least serious being
equivalent to a man committing adultery with his own mother.”
(Ibn Majah)


• Riba – Selected Ahadith
– By Hazrat Amr bin Al Aas (RT): “When interest based dealing
becomes common among people, they will start facing draught
and shortage of food. And when bribery becomes norm among
people they will live under constant fear of their enemy.”
– By Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (RT): The Prophet peace be upon him
– “There will certainly come a time for mankind when everyone will
take Riba and if he does not do so, its dust/smoke will reach him.”
(Abu Dawood, Ibn Majah)



The prohibition of interest is not limited to Islam,
but it is shared by Judaism and Christianity.

Some of the old testaments have rendered Riba as Haram. (See
Exodus 22:25, Leviticus 25:35-36, Deutronomy 23:20, Psalms 15:5,
Proverbs 28:8, Nehemiah 5:7 and Ezakhiel 18:8, 13,17 & 22:12)

Agibi Bank was established circa 700 B.C in Babylonian and
functioned exclusively on equity basis.

” • Summary: .RIBA • Definitions: • Imam Abu Bakr Jassaas Razi (rta): – “that kind of loan where specified repayment period and an amount in excess of capital is predetermined.“All conditional benefits on loan falls in the category of (Riba) interest” 36 .

” 37 .TYPES OF RIBA • • Al-Nasa (Al-Nasi’ah) or Riba-al-Jahiliya Al-Fazal or Riba-al-Bai • Riba Al-Mufrad (Simple Interest): “Interest calculated only on the initial investment” • Riba Al-Murakkab (Compound Interest): “Reinvestment of each interest payment on money invested to earn more interest.

Problems Faced by Economy:

Determination of Priorities
Allocation of Resources (land, Labor, Capital, Entrepreneur)
Distribution of Wealth / Income

We will compare how Capitalism, Socialism and Islamic Economic
System addresses to these problems.


Determination of Priorities
(Problem 01)
• Capitalism

Every Individual has an
unconditional and absolute
right to participate in any
business to maximize profits.

Concept of selfish interest.

Supply & Demand will
determine the priorities.

• Socialism

No individual has the right to
participate in any business

State will determine the
priorities as per the overall

Concept of collective interest.


Allocation of Resources
(Problem 02)

• Socialism


Market force will decide where
to invest resources.

Govt. will decide where to
allocate resources


Development (Problem 03) • • Capitalism Market forces will decide • • Socialism Govt. will decide 50 .

Distribution of Income (Problem 04) • • • • • • Capitalism Land Labor Capital Entrepreneur - Rent Wages Interest Profit • • Socialism Land – Rent fixed by Govt. Labor – Wages fixed by Govt. 51 .

which then distributes it among the factors of production 52 .Right to Wealth • • • Capitalism Right to wealth is with the factors of production only • Socialism Right to wealth with the Govt.

Flaws of Capitalism

No bindings / restrictions while maximizing profits.

Blindly follows market forces that creates exploitation of labor and
poor people.

No moral values limitations

Monopolies are created that exploit the society as a whole.

Govt. & Industrialists join hands for mutual benefits and make laws
that exploit common people.

Imbalance in the distribution of Income due to which concentration of
wealth takes place.

Flaws of Socialism

The other extreme of not even giving the natural freedom.

Perfect planning is assumed to be the “Cure of all ills”.

Govts. are assumed to be the angels which can’t commit a
deliberate mistake.

Can not work without a forceful dictatorship.

Creates overall inefficiency in the society. There is no incentive
to work efficiently as there is no individual profit motive




Freedom of business
Law of supply & Demand helps
Resources (land, labor & capital) will be used
Competition will force to improve, create and gain maximum.
Distribution of wealth among producers of wealth only
(law of supply & demand will help to decide their share)


Economics • Producer of Wealth: – – – – Land Labor Capital Owner will get will get will get will get Rent Wages Interest Profit 56 .

will decide about » Allocation of Resources » Determination of Priorities » Distribution of Income » Development • “It is also called Planned Economy” 57 .Economics • Socialism: – No Freedom – No Private Ownership – Govt.

Economics • Principles: – – – – Collective Property Planning Collective Interest Equitable distribution of Income 58 .

Economics • Islam: – – – – Everything belongs to Allah Private ownership is accepted Some restrictions applied to run your economy Law of supply & demand is accepted 59 .

lottery) State Restrictions (Smuggling. gambling. dealing in any restricted business etc) Moral Restrictions / Responsibilities 60 .Economics • Restrictions: Halal & Haraam (through Wahi) (Interest.

Economics • Direct Producer of Wealth: – Land – Labor – Capital – Owner Rent Wages (Not Interest) Profit & Risk of Loss Through Musharikah & Mudahiribah Profit or Loss 61 .

then He decides to share your wealth with others (their right) through: • Zakaat • Khiraaj • Ushr • Sadaqah • Kaffarah • Sacrifice / Qurbaani • Wirasaat 62 .Economics • If everything belongs to Allah.

Summary of the Comparison • Capitalism: gives unbridled and un conditional right to profit motive and private ownership. is the cure of all ills. • Islam: gives a balance view among the two extremes by recognizing the right to private ownership. restrictions -Moral values Islam ensures equitable distribution of wealth through the concept of primary ownership of Allah and secondary ownership of factors of production. 63 . • Socialism: goes to other extreme by assuming that perfect planning by the Govt. market forces and profit motive but the restrictions of: -Halal & Haram • -Govt.

sharing in the assets of the business to the extent of the ratio of financing. 104 . An Investor must share the loss incurred by the business to the extent of his financing. The partners can determine with mutual consent any ratio of profit which may differ from the ratio of investment. However the partner who has excluded himself from the responsibility of work for the business cannot claim more than the ratio of his investment.Project Financing • Proposed Methods: – Musharikah – Mudharibah Basic Principles: Financing through Musharikah and Mudharibah does not mean the advancing of money. It means participation in the business in the case of Musharikah.

In this case: • If the management is the sole responsibility of one party.Project Financing • Project Financing: – If the financier wants to finance the whole project. no problem with regard to the valuation of capital should arise. – If investment comes from both sides. the form of Mudharibah can come into operation. while the investment comes from both. the form of Musharikah can be adopted. 105 . a combination of musharikah and Mudharibah can be brought into play according to the rules. – Since it would be a new project.

the financier may get back the amount he has invested along with a profit. if the business has earned a profit. In this case. • If the financier wants to withdraw from the Musharikah. while the other party wants to continue the business. • In the case of loss.Project Financing • The distribution of profits according to the normal accounting standards is not difficult. 106 . • The price of his share would be determined through valuation of the assets called as constructive liquidation with mutual consent of the parties. however any decrease in the total value of the assets would be divided between them in the ratio of their investment. the later can purchase the shares of the former at an agreed price.

they can sell their share to other partners of the project. the financier totally comes out of the project.Project Financing • Since financial institutions do not normally want to remain partner of a specific project for good. 107 . the share of the financier in the project is reduced to that extent. • If the sale of the share on one time basis is not feasible for the lack of liquidity in the project. and when all the units are sold. • Whenever a unit is sold. the share of the financier can be divided into smaller units and each unit can be sold after a suitable interval.

Import Financing • Import Financing: – Conventional Banks charge two types of fee for the service of letter of credit which the bank provided to the importer. They are: • Service Charges for the opening an LC • Interest charged on the LCs not opened on full margin. 108 .

Import Financing • Collecting service charges for this purpose is allowed. scholars have proposed two methods for financing LCs. • These methods are: – Musharikah – Morabihah 109 . but as interest cannot be charged in any case.

Import Financing • Musharikah: The appropriate substitute for LC is Musharikah. If LC is being opened at some margin then Musharikah agreement can be made. importer will purchase the bank’s share at the market price. Bank will own the goods that are being imported and profit will be distributed according to the agreement. Bank and importer can make an agreement of Mudharbah or Musharikah while opening LC. Musharikah or Mudharibah will end after a certain time period even if the goods are not sold. whereby. If LC is being opened at zero margin then an agreement of Mudharbah can be made. with their mutual consent can also include a condition in the agreement. Bank will pay the remaining amount and the goods that are being imported will be owned by both of them according to their share of investment. Bank and importer. In this case. 110 . in which bank will become Rabb-ul-maal and importer will be regarded as Mudarib.

Import Financing • Murabihah: – At present Islamic banks are using Murabihah to finance LC. These banks themselves import the required goods and then sell these goods to the importer on Murabihah agreement. One for the purchase of goods and other for appointing the importer as the agent of the bank (that is agency agreement). Murabihah financing requires bank and importer to sign two agreements separately. 111 . Once these two agreements are signed. importer can negotiate and finalize all the terms and conditions with the exporter on behalf of the bank.

Murabihah (Agreement) Bank & Client Client & Bank Wakeel & Bank Bank & Wakeel Wakeel & Seller 112 .

Export Financing • Two important roles of bank in Exports: – They act as a negotiating bank and charge a fee for this purpose which is allowed in Shariah.
