Article 7 : Usury – Ribâ

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ إِدْرِيسَ، عَنْ أَبِي مَعْشَرٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدٍ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏“‏ الرِّبَا سَبْعُونَ حُوبًا أَيْسَرُهَا أَنْ يَنْكِحَ الرَّجُلُ أُمَّهُ ‏“‏‏.‏

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah  said:

There are seventy degrees of usury, the least of which is equivalent to a man having intercourse with his mother.”

[Ibn Majah # 2274 or 2360, Hasan]

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ حَدَّثَنِى أَبِى حَدَّثَنَا حُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ حَدَّثَنَا جَرِيرٌ – يَعْنِى ابْنَ حَازِمٍ – عَنْ أَيُّوبَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِى مُلَيْكَةَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ حَنْظَلَةَ غَسِيلِ الْمَلاَئِكَةِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم– « دِرْهَمُ رِباً يَأْكُلُهُ الرَّجُلُ وَهُوَ يَعْلَمُ أَشَدُّ مِنْ سِتَّةٍ وَثَلاَثِينَ زَنْيَةً ».

From Hanzhala, the man washed by the angels, (he said that) the Messenger of Allah  said :

“One dirham obtained from usury transaction, and used by a person who knew that it was a result of usury, the sin of it is more terrible than (the sin of, -ed) committing adultery for thirty six times.”

[Ahmad # 22008]

الَّذِينَ يَأْكُلُونَ الرِّبَا لَا يَقُومُونَ إِلَّا كَمَا يَقُومُ الَّذِي يَتَخَبَّطُهُ

الشَّيْطَانُ مِنَ الْمَسِّ

Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity

يَمْحَقُ اللَّهُ الرِّبَا وَيُرْبِي الصَّدَقَاتِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ كَفَّارٍ أَثِي

Allah destroys interest and gives increase for charities. And Allah does not like every sinning disbeliever.

[Surah Baqarah v.275-6]

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَذَرُوا مَا بَقِيَ مِنَ الرِّبَا إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

O you who have believed, fear Allah and give up what remains [due to you] of interest, if you should be believers.

فَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلُوا فَأْذَنُوا بِحَرْبٍ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ ۖ وَإِن تُبْتُمْ فَلَكُمْ رُءُوسُ أَمْوَالِكُمْ لَا تَظْلِمُونَ وَلَا تُظْلَمُونَ

And if you do not, then be informed of a war [against you] from Allah and His Messenger. But if you repent, you may have your principal – [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged.

[Surah Baqarah v.278-9]

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ، عَنْ ثَوْرِ بْنِ زَيْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِي الْغَيْثِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏“‏ اجْتَنِبُوا السَّبْعَ الْمُوبِقَاتِ ‏“‏‏.‏ قَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا هُنَّ قَالَ ‏“‏ الشِّرْكُ بِاللَّهِ، وَالسِّحْرُ، وَقَتْلُ النَّفْسِ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلاَّ بِالْحَقِّ، وَأَكْلُ الرِّبَا، وَأَكْلُ مَالِ الْيَتِيمِ، وَالتَّوَلِّي يَوْمَ الزَّحْفِ، وَقَذْفُ الْمُحْصَنَاتِ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ الْغَافِلاَتِ ‏“‏‏.‏

Narrated Abu Huraira, the Prophet () said :

Avoid the seven great destructive sins. They (the people!) asked,O Allah’s Apostle! What are they? He said,

1- To join partners in worship with Allah;

2- to practice sorcery;

3- to kill the life which Allah has forbidden except for a just cause (according to Islamic law);

4- to eat up usury (Riba),

5- to eat up the property of an orphan;

6- to give one’s back to the enemy and fleeing from the battle-field at the time of fighting

7- and to accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching chastity and are good believers.”

[Sahih Bukhari # 6857]

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الصَّبَّاحِ، وَزُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، وَعُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، قَالُوا حَدَّثَنَا هُشَيْمٌ، أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو الزُّبَيْرِ، عَنْ جَابِرٍ، قَالَ لَعَنَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم آكِلَ الرِّبَا وَمُوكِلَهُ وَكَاتِبَهُ وَشَاهِدَيْهِ وَقَالَ هُمْ سَوَاءٌ ‏.

Jabir said that Allah’s Messenger  cursed the accepter of interest and its payer, and one who records it, and the two witnesses, and he said:

They are all equal.

[Sahih Muslim # 4093, 1598]

والله تعالى أعلم
