Question: If I am exhorting my brothers and I warn them against some sins, but I fall into these sins myself, am I to be considered a hypocrite? Please advise me, may Allaah reward you with good.

Why Does Islam Forbid Interest? (Video)

info-pictogram1 So you think it’s okay to have loads of cash in the bank and live off the accrued interest? Well it’s not, it’s a major sin. The ethical precedent of justice and fairness set by Islam was shown in a recent Gallup Poll Survey that found Muslims as being the most generous in giving donations to charitable causes in the U.K. [not surprisingly, Atheists were bottom of the list!] In his Last Sermon, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) emphatically destroyed the tyranny of Interest till the End Times by saying, “Allah has forbidden you to take Usury (Riba), therefore all Riba obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your (lawfully earned) Capital, however, is yours to keep. From now on, you must neither inflict nor suffer inequity (in all aspects).” Capitalism is in its death throes. But what will happen after the next Credit Crunch Tsunami hits? Eventually tyranny must be replaced by justice. Muslims await the second coming of Jesus (peace be upon him), who will be heralded before his arrival by a character known as Imam Mahdi [following in the footsteps of John the Baptist, who heralded Jesus more than 2000 years ago] who will make sure the weak and downtrodden are looked after. The Mahdi will give out so much wealth to the poor that they will be unable to carry it away. The only question is… when? Allah Knows best. Just be on the right side. The least you can do is acknowledge the just ethics of Islam, even if you detest the Religion. May God Guide us all.
