Debt and Islam

Islamic Relief International | Information Paper

It is well known that debt is one of the root causes of poverty in many poor countries. Less well known is how Islam, a religion with charitable giving, social rights and justice at its core, deals with the issue. Muslim teachings are rarely utilised in the international discourse on ‘unjust’ debt and its consequences, yet studying them reveals many ways that the debt crisis could be tackled and ways in which similar problems could be avoided in the future.
