Many of us would have investments or pensions ( CPF ). But many would not know that there are tiny bits of haram income or assets that may be mixed in all that.
Narrated by Ibn Isa, and recorded in Abu-Dawood Hadith #3325, Prophet Muhammad SAW said,
“There will come a time when you will not be able to find a single person in the world who will not be consuming riba. And if anyone claims that he is not consuming riba then surely the dust of riba will reach him.”
No matter what we do or how we try to avoid it, it is clear today the Hadith mentioned above has become a reality. Every single one of us today cannot escape it.
Riba is a concept in Islam that refers broadly to the concept of growth, increasing or exceeding, which in turn forbids interest credited from loans or deposits. The term ‘riba’ has also been roughly translated as the pursuit of illegal, exploitative gains made in business or trade under Islamic law, akin to usury.
In Surah Al-Bakarah, Ayat 275-279, Allah SWT describes RIBA heavily on this matter.
In ayat 275, Allah SWT says, “Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stand who is being beaten by Satan into insanity.”
And in ayat 279, Allah SWT says, “And if you do not, then be informed of a war [against you] from Allah and His Messenger. But if you repent, you may have your principal – [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged.”
The stand on RIBA in our lives is quite clear that we should not even get involved in it. However as we live in a secular society, we cannot avoid it and this was mentioned by our Prophet Muhammad SAW.
