Riba- GEMs from conference call with Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem,

wa salatu wa salam ‘ala Rasul Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallama

Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef recently was on a conference call hosted by one of the AlMaghrib qabail (find out more: http://www.almaghrib.org), discussing financial independence. Few gems from the call:


Anything Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has made haram is a path to poverty

Anything that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has made halaal is a path to wealth.


Either a person masters money, or is a slave to money

Do they have to PAY for it?

Can they do it…? Or no, it costs too much money.

–>They say they are giving you credit for $1000, instead of saying “putting you in debt for $1000.”

With regards to buying a house on riba (interest):

Yes it’s a necessity to have a roof over your head, but it’s not a necessity to OWN the roof.

When you die 3 years after those 30 years, and you die having paid 30 years of riba, what are you going to say in front of ALLAH subhanahu wa ta’ala?

And now you’re shading your children with this?

May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala provide pure means and income for us all, and protect us from coming near thinking about using interest. Ameen.
