Question: How do we combat Riba?
“There are two forms of Riba that must be recognised. One is lending of money on interest. And the other would be a transaction based on deception which delivers a gain or a profit to which,… one is not justly entitled. That is the elegant way of describing a rip-off.
The greatest rip off that has ever occurred in human history is the rip off of the monetary system that we now have, of bogus and fraudulent and utterly Haram paper currencies and the electronic currency which is now taking over from the paper currency.
What do you do? Answer, when you have abandoned the Qur’an and Sunnah, make Tauba and return to the Qur’an and Sunnah. Meaning return to the Gold Dinar and the Silver Dirham.
Do you know that Israel tomorrow is going to mint… In fact I think they have already minted the Gold Dinar and Silver Dirham. And Israel would be using that.
Why would Israel have to do it? If you study ‘Ilmu Akhir-Az-Zaman (Islamic Eschatology) you can answer these questions.
…Every Jew knows, only that money can be used in the temple which does not have any human figure on it.
The Roman coins at the time of Nabi Isa (A) were Haram to be used in the Temple; because they had graven images… And so the Temple (at that time) used to mint its own coins, gold and silver. And the people came to the temple if they wanted an animal to be Zabiha (sacrificed); you got to pay for it. And no one could sacrifice the animal except the Rabbi. Therefore the temple got some revenue. So you had to pay the temple in this money which was Halal (gold and silver coins).
So when Dajjal stands up in Jerusalem tomorrow, and he has not brought back that Halal money, no Jew will accept him as the Messiah. This is why I believe that Israel has already minted her gold and silver coins so that these can be introduced before Dajjal makes his appearance.
So that’s the first thing you can do; bring back the Gold Dinar and the Silver Dirham as money. Can you do it in downtown KLCC? I’m not stopping you. If you want to try, go ahead.
It is my opinion based on my study on Surah Kahf of the Qur’an that the only place you can bring back the Gold Dinar and Silver Dirham as money in the market, is in the remote country side. And in those micro markets we will not accept your paper money.
In so far as money lent on interest is concerned; make Tauba if you have borrowed money on interest to buy your car, or to buy your house.
Make Tauba because if you die with that Riba, there is no way you can enter into Jannah. Why? Because the curse of the Prophet (SA) is upon you.
Get out of that Riba. Sell the car. Sell the house. Pay the bank. When you try do to that… you will know what kind of snake there is in the bank.
Make Tauba and never again borrow or lend money on interest.”
