57. Riba (Interest or usury)

 

Surah No. 2, Al Baqr, Ayat No. 274



الَّذِينَ يَأْكُلُونَ الرِّبَا لَا يَقُومُونَ إِلَّا كَمَا يَقُومُ الَّذِي يَتَخَبَّطُهُ الشَّيْطَانُ مِنَ الْمَسِّ

ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا إِنَّمَا الْبَيْعُ مِثْلُ الرِّبَا وَأَحَلَّ اللَّهُ الْبَيْعَ وَحَرَّمَ الرِّبَا فَمَنْ جَاءَهُ

مَوْعِظَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِ فَانْتَهَىٰ فَلَهُ مَا سَلَفَ وَأَمْرُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَمَنْ عَادَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ

o أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

Translation :



Those who consume usury will stand on the day of Resurrection as if he is embraced by shaitan and driven him to madness. That is because they say: "Trade is like usury, but Allah has permitted trade and forbidden usury. Those who after receiving direction from their Lord, desist, shall be pardoned for the past; and its decision will remain with Allah (to judge); but those who repeat are companions of the Fire: they will remain there for ever.



Surah No. 2, Al Baqr, Ayat No. 278-279



o يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَذَرُوا مَا بَقِيَ مِنَ الرِّبَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ

فَإِنْ لَمْ تَفْعَلُوا فَأْذَنُوا بِحَرْبٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَإِنْ تُبْتُمْ فَلَكُمْ رُءُوسُ

o أَمْوَالِكُمْ لَا تَظْلِمُونَ وَلَا تُظْلَمُونَ

Translation :



O you who believe! fear Allah and give up what remains from usury, if you are real believers.

If you don't do it, take notice of war from Allah and His Messenger: but if you repent, you shall have your capital sums ; You should not deal unfairly, then you shall not be dealt with unjustly.
