Credit cards

Q: My question is that I live in muscat and I am a teacher. I want to start a side business. So the bank is offering me a credit card and the offer is that if I pay the money back I use from credit card in 52 days then no interest will be charged. But I will only use it for the business so please tell me what Islam says about this? Will look forward to your reply in the lights of Islam.


A: If you are sure that you will be able to pay back the loan before it accrues interest, it will be permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
