Q: I live in Mauritius, where Islamic Finance and Interest Free loans are not available. In these circumstances, is it permissible to take a loan to construct a house. I have heard of verses of the Qur’an where Allah declares war on those who consume and pay ribaa.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
