My name is Ajaz Ahmed and I am from Kashmir. I want to set up Islamic loan facility for Muslim brothers. I will purchase cars, house, fridge etc and then add additional profit amount so that the brothers can pay in installments for fixed years/months. Is it ok if I ask for gold, property etc as security so that when the brothers pay in full, I return the same? Please advise.

Answer

(Fatwa: 1156/970/B=1433)

As you mentioned, if there is no involvement of giving and taking interest in instalment, then you may do this work. And you can ask for gold or property as security.
