How is TABUK Islamic?

Islamic Shariah permits Trade but prohibits Usury. Bank’s income is derived from the use of money by the borrower, which is prohibited. TABUK invests in the property and derives its income from the compensation given by the user for the use of that property. This is perfectly halal.

The member and TABUK are partners in acquiring a property as this is one of the primary conditions that make any financial contract acceptable from the Shariah perspective. We also do not accept any investments from banks or financial institutions.

“…and Allah has permitted trading and forbidden usury…”
Al-Quran, Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter 2; Verse 275)
