Pension fund

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Our company has a pension fund that has various portfolios options of which one is a shariah compliant option. The problem is that the fund is loosing so much on my money monthly. Do you continue loosing money or place it in a safe interest bearing portfolio?


A: Obviously interest is haraam and it is a curse. It cannot be a blessing for anybody.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
