Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh

We understand that your friend wishes to purchase a mobile from Amazon via credit card which will incur interest charges.

The transaction in reference in not permissible due to the interest charges on the credit card. However such a transaction will be permissible if your friend purchased the mobile with the credit card without incurring any interest charges.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
