Question : I had shares in a bank which deals with ribaa, and then I sold them and earnt a profit. And now, some time has passed and I do not know what to do with it (the profit). So what do you advise me with? And may Allaah reward you with good.

Response : In the Name of Allaah, and all Praise is for Allaah (alone). The ribaa profit can be spent on good causes, whilst you (are entitled to) keep the initial amount (of the investment). So you must spend this profit in assisting the mujaahidoon and rennovating toilet facilities, and donating to the poor and that which is similar to this.
