QUESTION:

Assalaamualikum 

 

I have a query can interest money be used to pay home rates 

 

JazakAllah

 

 

Answer:

 

 

As Muslims, living in non Muslim countries we are bound to adhere to the rules of the country as long as they are not unislamic. The rates levied on homes are in lieu of services rendered by the municipality. However, if there is no service delivery and the property is been neglected, one may use his/her discretion in determining how much the municipality is justified in charging and the balance may be paid with interest money.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
