Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
- In today’s world of dealings, businesses and economies, it is extremely difficult to keep away from conventional banks. There is a need to safe keep ones money. Cheques and drafts are common modes of payments and exchanges. Many instances they are even requirements. In view of such difficulties, the Ulama have granted a leeway to deposit money in conventional banks and use other facilities of such banks which are not un-Islamic. This leeway is granted as a need and could be used only to the extent of the need. One cannot go beyond the need and use the un-Islamic facilities of the bank for example the un-Islamic investments etc.
- It is fardh to make jihad against ones nafs and train ones nafs to abide by shariah. Our greatest enemy is the nafs and shaitaan.
And Allah knows best
