Ghamidi’s opinion on taking interest versus giving interest

On a conversation on Aaj TV, you said that the one who takes interest on his wealth does wrong according to islamic principles but the one who gives it, does not do any wrong activity. Does this mean that we can take a loan from bank on interest basis because we will be giving riba and bank will be taking riba from us, so bank’s activity is wrong according to Islam and not ours since we are just giving?


That is what it means if you accept Javed Ghamidi Sb’s understanding on the issue, which I do. Please make sure that you understand the argument of his view. If you are satisfied with it, it’s only then that you should go for it.
