Taking interest money

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am investing 10 lakh in my own company and apart from the salary, I am taking interest of 1 % month to month. I am day to day involved in the company’s success. Is it jaiz?


A: Consuming of interest is haraam. Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has cursed the one who pays the interest and the one who receives and consumes it. Similarly, the one who gets involved in interest is in war with Allah Ta`ala.

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