Why Islam forbids Interest.
Capitalism is in its death throes. But what will happen after the next Credit Crunch Tsunami hits? Eventually tyranny must be replaced by justice. In his Last Sermon, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) emphatically destroyed the tyranny of Interest till the End Times by saying, "Allah has forbidden you to take usury (Riba), therefore all Riba obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your (lawfully earned) Capital, however, is yours to keep. From now on, you must neither inflict nor suffer inequity (in all aspects)." The ethical precedent of justice and fairness set by the noble Prophet (peace be upon him) will again be emulated in the era of Imam Mahdi and Jesus (peace be upon them both) who will make sure the weak and downtrodden are looked after and make the World a beautiful place to live in once again. The only question is... when? Allah Knows best. Just be on the right side. Embrace ethical Islam.
