2.12 Ribawi Transactions, Part 1 - Student loans
Join Islamic Finance Podcast Telegram channel at: Don’t forget to rate our podcast *5 stars* wherever you listen to us! In this episode: We take a deeper look at ribawi transactions. In particular, we analyse the "Student loan" to see if it is ribawi or not. In recent times we have seen several opinions about student loans so this is an opportunity to learn how to break down any contract to its most simple form. By reducing this transaction to its most simple form we are able to establish the most fundamental truth about the substance of what seems like a complex or innovative new way of contracting. In the most simple forms, all contracts will have something in common. It is at this level that we look if rules or riba apply or not. Looking at the transaction from any higher place brings a level of abstraction that clouds the reality. What is Ribawi transaction? Ribawi transaction is an exchange of specific items that are subject to the rules of riba. Violating these rules leads to an unlawful gain which is called riba. The common denominator in these transactions is, for instance, an unequal exchange of money-for-money on the spot or as a deferred payment basis. Exchanging $100 on the spot for $120 in the future is an example of such an impermissible transaction due to the unlawful gain. The basis of these prohibitions is that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: 'Gold for gold, weight for weight, like for like; and silver for silver, weight for weight, like for like. Whoever gives more or takes more has engaged in Riba." (Sunan an-Nasa'i 4569) “Do not sell gold for gold, except like for like, and don't increase something of it upon something;” (Sahih Muslim 1584a) "The bartering of gold for gold is Riba (usury), except if it is from hand to hand and equal in amount, …” (Al-Bukhari 2134) Podcast Hosted by Almir Colan.

The Mystery of Diversity
The vast diversity we see all around us constantly reminds us of God’s greatness. This week’s Sacred Text Messages podcast discusses the Qur’anic imperative to respect the diversity of human beings in our races, religions, and tribes. In a time where hate and division have risen to new heights, this lesson serves as a much needed reminder to practice prophetic benevolence and reason over rage and violence. أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِهِ ثَمَرَاتٍ مُخْتَلِفًا أَلْوَانُهَا ۚ وَمِنَ الْجِبَالِ جُدَدٌ بِيضٌ وَحُمْرٌ مُخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهَا وَغَرَابِيبُ سُودٌ See you not that Allâh sends down water (rain) from the sky, and We produce therewith fruits of varying colours, and among the mountains are streaks white and red, of varying colours and (others) very black তুমি কি দেখনি আল্লাহ আকাশ থেকে বৃষ্টিবর্ষণ করেন, অতঃপর তদ্দ্বারা আমি বিভিন্ন বর্ণের ফল-মূল উদগত করি। পর্বতসমূহের মধ্যে রয়েছে বিভিন্ন বর্ণের গিরিপথ-সাদা, লাল ও নিকষ কালো কৃষ্ণ। وَمِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ وَٱلدَّوَآبِّ وَٱلْأَنْعَـٰمِ مُخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَٰنُهُۥ كَذَٰلِكَ ۗ إِنَّمَا يَخْشَى ٱللَّهَ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ ٱلْعُلَمَـٰٓؤُا۟ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ غَفُورٌ And likewise of men and Ad-Dawâbb [moving (living) creatures, beasts], and cattle, are of various colours. It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is All-Mighty, Oft-Forgiving. और इसी तरह आदमियों और जानवरों और चारपायों की भी रंगते तरह-तरह की हैं उसके बन्दों में ख़ुदा का ख़ौफ करने वाले तो बस उलेमा हैं बेशक खुदा (सबसे) ग़ालिब और बख्शने वाला है (Qur’an 35:27-28) - About the Sacred Text Messages podcast: In this age of material excess and spiritual privation, grounding ourselves in divine guidance has never been more critical. The Sacred Text Messages podcast with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf provides an antidote to the modern madness by reconnecting us with God and His Messenger ﷺ.
