RIBA IS CONDEMNED IN THE AHADITH


Assalam oalaikum,

We have gone through some of the Quranic verses which condemn riba in a clear-cut way. In this post I shall discuss about the ahadith which also reject riba in strong words.

Narrated Abu Huraira that Prophet Mohammad (saw) ‘Riba has 70 segments and the least serious is equivalent to a man committing incest with his own mother.

In another narration by Abu Huraira Prophet Mohammad (saw) said ‘Allah will not allow four persons to enter Paradise or to taste its blessings: he who consumes alcohol, he who takes riba, he who seizes an orphan’s property without right and he who is not dutiful towards his parents.

Reported Jabir, ‘The Prophet (saw) has cursed the taker and the payer of riba, the one who records it (the contract) and the two witnesses to such a transaction and he further said that ‘they are all alike (in guilt)’

So those who belong to the Ummah of the Prophet (saw) should not to be misguided by the un-Islamic practices such as credit cards simply because these evils are rampant in the modern society.
Every true Muslim should practice taqwah which is compared to walking in the midst of a narrow, thorny path where the person who is passing through has to protect his clothes from getting torn. The thorns are the sins and his clothes are his Imaan.

Keep Me In Your Prayers.
