Purchasing a car with interest

Q: I work as a taxi driver. I had a car that was always breaking down which meant I was missing a lot of work and always spending money to repair it. I have bought a car on finance. Please could you tell me if my earnings are haram as I am being charged interest on this finance.


A: If finance means that you purchased it with interest then this is haraam, though the money earned will not be haraam.

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