A: We cannot vouch for any bank whether they are halaal or not. Many a times, their constitutions are corrupt, and if they are right then many of the staff do not understand the concepts or do not apply the concept. Hence we are not in the position of approving.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
