ribaa funds for good causes
*Please appropriately reference
this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
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
In the Name of Allaah, and all Praise is for Allaah (alone).
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.
