Using ribaa funds for good causes
: 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.
