I don’t believe in the Islamic Bank in our country



Assalamu’alaikum wr.wb.

respected mufti shahib…

I dont believe in the Islamic Bank in our country nowadays, therefore I keep my money in conventional Bank and give away the interest as charity to needy people without hoping for reward. Even if I put my money in the so called Islamic Bank, I would still do the same think. Is this OK?



Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.



Since the interest accrued in conventional or “Islamic” Banks is disposed off, it will not make a difference were the money is kept. You may keep it in either bank and dispose of the interest.
