Interest money

Q: Please I am from Tunis. My son has a million in a bank so after 11 years he find “agios” “faida”. I want to ask you if he can spend this money for his study?


A: If you are referring to interest (usury), then interest is Haraam in Islam. Interest money should be disposed off by giving it in charity to the poor without the intention of receiving any reward.

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