Verses on Riba (Interest) from the Holy Qur’an

  • Those who devour usury (interest) will not stand except as stand one whom the Evil one by his touch Hath driven to madness. That is because they say: “Trade is like usury,” but Allah hath permitted trade and forbidden usury. Those who after receiving direction from their Lord, desist, shall be pardoned for the past; their case is for Allah (to judge); but those who repeat (The offence) are companions of the Fire: They will abide therein (for ever).              ( Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse 275)
  •  Allah will deprive usury of all blessing, but will give increase for deeds of charity: For He loveth not creatures ungrateful and wicked.                   (Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #276)
  • O ye who believe! Fear Allah, and give up what remains of your demand for usury, if ye are indeed believers.        (Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #278)
  • O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied; but fear Allah; that ye may (really) prosper.   (Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #130)
  • That they took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men´s substance wrongfully;- we have prepared for those among them who reject faith a grievous punishment.  (An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #161)
  • That which ye lay out for increase through the property of (other) people, will have no increase with Allah: but that which ye lay out for charity, seeking the Countenance of Allah, (will increase): it is these who will get a recompense multiplied. (Ar-Room, Chapter #30, Verse #39)
