Q. InterestFree4Cars.com- a permissible finance solution for Muslim beliefs in the UK?
Conventional United Kingdom financing options conflict with the core beliefs of the Muslim faith, and as a result, gives Muslims living in the UK who wish to finance a used car no choice but to go against their beliefs. The core of Islamic economics is a prohibition on interest, meaning Muslims cannot take or give interest on anything.
This immediately creates a problem for Muslims, as conventional banks charge borrowers an interest rate through which they make profit.
Sharia law requires that Muslim people are not permitted to pay or receive interest. In order to comply with Sharia, consumer banking has set up services for Muslim customers offering mortgages, this usually involves the bank buying the house but selling it back to the borrower at an inflated price and the customer paying "rent" until the total amount is paid off.
