Q: My sister wants to buy a house. She does not have money. She thinks of taking loan. Unfortunately in Pakistan, neither banks nor any individual gives loan without imposing interest on it. Please guide me what should she do, because living in rented houses is very problematic here.
A: Don’t lose hope. Where there is a will there is a way. May Allah Ta`ala create an opening that is pure and clean without any interest. Generally, when a person leads a contented life then the little that he has also seems to be too much.
Recite “Allahummakfinee be halaalika `an haraamika wa aghninee be fadhlika `amman siwaak” after every namaaz. Also engage in plenty of istighfaar with sincerity.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
