Rytha says:
Why you refuse the one who work in bank?

Sister in Islam says:
Coz it is a bank deal with riba
Sister in Islam says:
So his money is haram, Actually I know what bank he works in
Sister in Islam says:
I know it is riba
Rytha says:
Then it's different thing

Sister in Islam says:
U know, when his mother called to ask mother about me
Sister in Islam says:
Mother told her for what I rejected
Sister in Islam says:
She said: “yes I understand even his aunty don't take his gifts to her coz it is from riba bank money”

Sister in Islam says:
Sis, it is haram food, cloth, living u r talking about, not anything
Rytha says:
yes, I understand sis....

Sister in Islam says:
alhmdolilah sis the right one will come one time

Rytha says:

That conversation took place some years ago.

May Allah subhana wata’ala bless and protect this sister and her family. May Allah reward her persistent for care the purity of her life and steadfast in her deen.

Nowadays, the matter of ribaa (usury) is something very common, touch to the most of our life aspect.

It’s very rare to find someone like her who steadfast to care her deen. I do know very much how much she wished to get married in soon but the matter of deen is not something to be compromised. That what a real Moslem should do, she can’t throw her belief for comfort luxurious life even she knew a man who works in bank usually earns very good salary. It’s a guaranty for a comfort luxurious life, a grant he can fulfill all worldly desire.

Alhamdulillah she is so many patience to wait the right person.

Once she made the wrong decision, It will affect not only her world life but also her hereafter life, not only about her life but also the life of her children. What will be the children who grow from haram money? Haram money that will convert to be their bloods, minds, heart, all our children’s organs, intact to them forever …...Flesh that grows from haram money will not free from the hell fire… na’uzubillah

There will be no chance to get the pious sprouts that will make do’a for their parents. Consume haram wealth prevent their du’aa be answered
[1] . What will be our life if our du’a not be answered by Allah, we need to make du’a all time, our life full with du’a start from we wake up in the morning until we ready to close of our eyes….

It’s impossible to seek the blessing and the mercy of Allah. Allah is good and only accepts that which is good. Wallahualam…

Do we really think about ribaa in these days? Ribaa become too common and be the part of our daily system. Many Moslem accept to fall easily to this system without feel anything, not hesitate to fall into ribaa transaction as if the sin is so light, because it something very common….

Does the riba really that light ?

We often feel so much disgust when we find someone commit zina… but we don’t feel anything when we see someone commit ribaa.

Ikhwah fillah…… Rasulullah salalallahu alahi wassalam said “A dirham which a man consumes as ribaa knowingly is worse before Allaah than thirty-six acts of zina.”
[2] In another narration Rasulullah sallahu alahi wassalam describe that : “There are seventy-two types of riba, the least of which is like a man committing incest with his mother.” [3]

Rasulullah sallahu ahaihi wassalam warned us ribaa is one the seven big sins that doom someone to the Hell… na’uzubillah…. It’s in the same class of shirk and killer.

Astaghfirullah wa atubu ilaika….

Rasulullah sallahu alahi wassalam inform us someone who consume riba will stand in a river of blood; try to move from that river. But there is a man on the other bank of the river with stones, that man will throw a tones in his mouth and he will go back to were he had been…

Allah subhana wata’ala says someone who eat riba will not stand on the Day of resurrection except like the standing of a person beaten by shaytaan (Satan) leading him to insanity [6]


InshaAllah we are in journey to be a true believer, a true sincere believer will not feel comfort after hear the reminder from Allah and His Messenger. We have to afraid from the wrath of Allah.

Allah subhana wata’ala says “O you who believe! Be afraid of Allaah and give up what remains (due to you) from Riba”

It’s indeed a test in our time to be patience to not fall in this sin. There are so many temptations and the shaytan keep whispering to create the reasons to trap us into this sins. The evils may say if we can’t take loan from ribaa bank, then we will not able to have a house soon….

Some people may think this as the condition of darurat (urgent) situation.

Can we afford to rent house that free from ribaa?

Should we have car with interest loans?
Should all of us have credit card?
Do we need join all kind of insurances?

Is that something bother if until the rest of life we cant own any house, car, credit card, insurance but die in the state Allah please with us ?

However we should not have all what we want, especially if what we want can make us slip from the way that may displease Allah…. There are already so many things that we can’t avoid that make us involve in system that displease Allah, we shouldn’t add more sins with sins that consciously, deliberately we fall to them…. Na’uzubillah..

We have to be careful to watch our steps. Some may think, it’s only them who ask interest who is sinned. Rasulullah salallahu alahi wassalam cursed the one who consumes riba, the one who pays it, the one who records it and the two who witness it, and he said: “They are all the same.”
[8] They are all equal in sin.

Rasulullah sallahu alahi wassalam said " There will come a day where a Muslim holding fast to his deen (religion) is like he who is gripping a hot coal"

InshaAllah We should try to be taqwa the maximum thing that we can. Every Muslim has to implement Islamic law, with all possible means, in all affairs inshaAllah in accordance with a verse of Qur’an that we often recite in our prayer :

“My prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are for Allah".

Wallahualam bishshowab

[1] Rasulullah sallahu alahi wassalam mentioned about a man who has traveled on a long journey and is disheveled and covered with dust; he stretches forth his hands to the heaven, (saying) “O Lord, O Lord”, but his food is haraam, his drink is haraam, all his nourishment is haraam, so how can he du’aa’ be accepted?” Narrated by Muslim.
[2] Narrated by Ahmad and al-Tabaraani; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 3375.
[3] Narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Awsat; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 3537.
[4] It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Avoid the seven sins that doom a person to Hell.” They said: O Messenger of Allaah, what are they? He said: “Shirk (associating others with Allaah), witchcraft, killing a soul whom Allaah has forbidden us to kill, expect in cases determined by Islamic law, consuming riba, consuming orphans’ wealth, running away from the battle field, and slandering chaste, innocent believing women.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2615; Muslim, 89.
[5] It was narrated that Samurah ibn Jundub (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Last night I saw two men who came to me and took me out to a holy land. We set out until we came to a river of blood in which a man was standing, and on the bank of the river there was a man with stones in front of him. The man who was in the river came and wanted to get out, but the other man threw a stone in his mouth and he went back to where he had been. Every time he wanted to get out, he threw a stone in his mouth and he went back to where he had been. I said, ‘What is this?’ He said: ‘The one whom you saw in the river is the one who consumed riba.’” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1979
[6] “Those who eat Ribaa will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaytaan (Satan) leading him to insanity. That is because they say: “Trading is only like Riba,” whereas Allaah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba. So whosoever receives an admonition from his Lord and stops eating Riba, shall not be punished for the past; his case is for Allaah (to judge); but whoever returns (to Riba), such are the dwellers of the Fire — they will abide therein” Qur’an : Al-Baqarah 2:275
