Do we really understand our responsibilities regarding wealth? If we are sincerely striving to please Allah, then we must be concerned with our financial dealings. But in societies and systems where interest is the rule of the day, how are we able to participate without compromising our cherished Islamic principles? Jamal Badawi examines this issue by providing possible solutions for three common economic challenges: selling things that are forbidden, the question of riba (is it the same as interest?) and the question of insurance. He then briefly touches upon the following areas of concern: indirect riba, saving plans and pensions, student loans, working at a bank or insurance company, and interest accrued on bank accounts. Other topics discussed: leasing cars, paying more for Islamic financing, deferred payments, leasing equipment, how to explain why interest is haram, and if Islamic economics are just theory.
