salaam alaikoum, i am in need of some answers as i keep finding so many answers online but with not so known people or people who i dont have the knowledge to judge as being unto the sunna.

I am a recent muslim and i still get various answers to what i should do with riba money left in my account as in what to do with it? some told me give it to charities, some to poor people and some to give back to bank! they all seem good but i need to know the real answer, as in the true one?

If none can answer here where or who can i ask? any scholars who are trustworthy to ask online?

jazakoul allah

assalamu alaikum wa rahmatu Allah

I read your question to Shaikh Muhammad bin Hadi al-Madkhali

He answered:

ııı ıııı ıııııı ıııııı

All praise is due to Allah and may Allah shower peace and blessings upon His Messenger, as for what follows.

The answer to the questioner's inquiry, in which he mentions that he embraced Islam and has some wealth derived from usurious (interest-laiden) financial transactions during his time as a Non-Muslim, so what does he do with it? We respond saying:

Whatever usurious monies or transactions were a part of his wealth during his period of Kufr (disbelief), he is not at fault for them.
Also, any transactions set into motion during his period of Kufr and then continued after accepting Islam, and these contracts continue between him and others (like usurious loans and sales), then it is not allowed for him to benefit from them and he has no claim to those benefits and must only take what Islam has allowed for him to take, which is the initial capital.

This is due to Allah's statement, "... and if you make Taubah (repentance). you shall have your capital sums. Deal not unjustly (by asking more than your capital sums), and you shall not be dealt with unjustly (by receiving less than your capital sums)..." [al-Baqarah 2:279]  

Also, the Hadith during the Prophet's -sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam- fairwell Hajj (pilgrimage), "Verily, all usurious dues accruing from Jahiliyyah (pre-Islamic era) stand wiped out. And the first amount of interest that I remit is that which Abbas bin Abdul Mutallib had to receive. Verily, it is being remitted entirely. You shall have your capital sums. Deal not unjustly, and you shall not be dealt with unjustly."

And all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the world

After answering the question, the Shaikh added:

The Prophet -sallalaahi alaihi wa sallam- never ordered those who embrace Islam -from the Sahabah- to get rid of the usurious monies from their (existing) wealth.

( End of Shaikh's Answer )

May Allah Reward our shaikh ... Ameen
