Answer

(Fatwa: 460/379/B=1433)

It is narrated in Muslim Sharif by Hadhrat Jabir (رضى الله عنه) that the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) cursed a person who consumes interest, feeds it, calculates it and bears witness to it. It tells that it is haram and unlawful for a Muslim to write interest calculation and audit. The income of an unlawful job is unlawful.
