You are already paying them for equity + “rent”, which some scholars say is OK. In response to your question about calling out your numbers and situations as idealized, I repeat that while I understand homebuying can be attractive, and at times better financially than even renting, this isn’t ALWAYS the case, and in fact many times it is not – the benefits you’ve mentioned are not available for everyone, the situation is not the same, and to make it sound as though it is in your opening paragraph, in my opinion, is a mistake. As such, the use of this fatwa by other financial institutions is illegal and misleading. | MuslimMatters.org, http://www.muftitaqiusmani.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1:misuse-of-a-fatwa, http://www.amjaonline.org/en/articles/entry/amja-resident-fatwa-committee-resolution-about-islamic-home-financing-companies-in-the-us#comments, Aly Jamal Mortgage Specialist | American Mortgage Rates, Condos And Townhomes For Sale 75180 | Condos Dallas, Buying Bank Stocks Halal | Your Stock Market Futures. “We are a nation who are blindly following the literal ‘syntax’ of the law without looking at its objectives.”.

Such simplistic treatments of the topic truly doesnt do it justice. I would also be interested in hearing from our Shaykh Yasser Birjas, who is currently teaching Pure Paisa on economic transactions. Many sunni scholars deem it permissble today, and many hanafi scholars of deoband deem it haram, why this difference when they both follow hanafi … in all this… Sure, you scored in the top 5% at Wharton, so what? if we DON’T raise these objections, then the discourse on this subject continues unchallenged – ie that these schemes are all halal and there’s no need to question. The point of confusion arises when the property is paid off by the homeowner. Question: Assalaam alaikum, What is the method of Salah in Hanafi mathab? all those who have posted in favor or against it. There are many other factors to evaluate. Financing is one of the greatest problems facing the Muslims, not just in the In my case I asked my dad to loan me some money to pay off the house and I send him money every month to pay his money back. The New York Times put together an interactive chart that asks is it better to rent or buy, and you can input the numbers you have in mind, and it will tell you over a 6 year period whether it’s better to rent and funnel your down payment into an investment, or choose a house: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/business/buy-rent-calculator.html. Do you remember the context and what he said? My personal believe is that Allah would not give us a commandment that is hard to figure out. Many of the top scholars that are actively engaged in Islamic finance I do not live in the US and am not familiar with the guidance financial contract… but if what you say is correct, this does sound rather dubious. Guidance financial is not an Ijarah based contract. For others like 52-year-old Shaheen S (name changed for anonymity), it isn’t a matter of negotiation and even a deal-breaker when it comes to who to get married to.

Those who commit it are considered to be waging war against Allah, and His Prophet (saw). Similar in content is the other Hadith which says: 'Islam is superior and none can excel it.

Islam is not that complicated. approved by Mufti Muhammad Taqi Uthmani in 1995 for another institution. In the area I live, townhomes rent from $1500 (very low end) to $3500 (upscale communities). Shaykh Yasir – does this sound like something you would be able to research? Allow me to post a different view.May Allah(swt) guide us on  to the right path through this different opinion. Is it not reasonable to say “Okay I will help you buy the property given that 1) we set a rent for teh property of which we split 80:20 2) you promise to use your 20% of the rent to slowly buy me out 3) You can decide when to sell  the property but you are responsible for the gain/loss.

In the contract that they It also depends on what frame of mind you are looking at the contract with. *Islam does not require us to be compatible with current practices. Be Gentle, “Amad, when you say “arguments such as Muslims don’t need houses are misguided in the practical sense” makes me wonder what you would reply to our Rasool when he told us to be in this world like a traveller who just sat down to rest for a bit or when he said that Muslims are like strangers in this world.”. Putting a more positive spin on it, a person could potentially have 20-years or 15-years left on the loan, and by that point will likely owe less than the price of the home.

However, in our case even if the Muslim is the giver (of usury) he/she is still the beneficiary as he/she will win an own house after a number of years.Furthermore, statements forwarded by Muslims living in Europe to the Council through correspondence and/or direct contacts show that payments made through mortgage are equal, and sometimes lower, than those paid as mere rent mortgage. Assume that for the housing market, the average expected return is 5% (and that is actually what you will find in most stable market across the world). Asalamualaykum, In actual fact the ‘sale’, also, was entirely fictitious. It’s a strange and irresponsible inheritance to leave one’s family, a 30 year debt. I’m a physician!!!   Allah has lifted difficulty as stated in Surat Al-Hajj and Al-Maidah:(And He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship" (Al-Hajj: 78), and (Allah does not want to place you in difficulty, but He wants to purify you, and to complete His Favour to you that you may be thankful.) 5. Board in place for each aspiring Shari`ah-compliant financial The only scholars who ruled this innocent fixture to be permissible were from the Hanafi school, and hence taps came to be known as hanafiyah.

By this time, normally, the kids have grown up and have also been encouraged to get their own 30 year debt on a house, so now the situation to to spread debt among children? Shifts in positions are not only a product of convenience. Jazakallah Khair! Apple, Microsoft etc.) Could you please share it with us? Yet we find Muslims in the scores buying a home.

Muslims in charge of these schemes prove that the above argument is invalid and Let me share an example Mortgage lending at big banks such as Wells Fargo & Co. and J.P. Morgan Chase has dropped more quickly than the rest of the industry. This permission is attributed to the Hanafi madhhab, and some evidence is quoted for it. Ibrahim below. I think we should follow this opinion, it appear that everyone is fine with it, this is the danger when scholar’s start debating complex matter’s in front of regular Public, i chalange anyone if he or she at least read Taqui Usmani Book about islamic finance. I would owe it to them the exact same way as a conventional loan would be due to a bank.” According to my understanding, both profit and loss should be shared according to the percentage of ownership. Taqi Usmani is doing what most of us muslims practice in our daily lives anyways. For me to invest in this business, I absolutely have to get the return that the market will generally give for this risk. *Islam promotes Qarz and that has different rules. Allah does not require people to do things that are beyond their capacity.2. The question comes in for those who simply refuse to take that same path for all of the aforementioned reasons. On a related note, I just looked up the Shariah board of guidance and it shows Mufti Taqi as still being on the board. I beg to differ, and I would suggest we consider the ramifications for the thousands of Muslims who took these loans in a sincere attempt to follow Islamic principles in their lives. Given the aforementioned difficulties, I don’t see renting as a reasonable alternative, and think Islamic Finance is something that can offer comparable benefits in a more religiously conscious way. In response to investing in one’s self, an assessment of financial priorities and current family priorities has to take place, and then a plan has to be made based on that. I moved to USA in 2009, never bought a house in Canada and in 2010, harvested my retirement savings prematurely, paid 25% non-resident tax to Canada, transferred funds to USA and bought a reasonable dwelling (not a mansion) next to masjid on cash. But, I can’t keep this relation because it’s haram in Islam. The point I want to drive home here is not whether La Riba is right or wrong in quoting it – but the bigger picture – utilizing a scholar’s name to provide legitimacy to a finance scheme. and not musharakah, hence confusion comes from assumptions beeing made. We need ot ask *why* he said it and how it applied to their times – and how it applied ot ours.

If an Islamic Mortgage Costs too Much, Can I Take a Conventional Mortgage? He is providing a solution so that we can follow the letter of the law. Millions of Muslims have lived and died in this world without owning homes. Al karadawi imam understand the Quran and Islamic fatwa better than other non Arab imams And frankly, your being taught Islamic finance by one of the best kuffaar (ostensibly) lawyers in the world has as much relevance to your understanding of the subject as Muslims who learn Islam from Christian Professors delivering lectures on Islam. Riba is when you make money out of money. years. If the Islamic finance company owns 90% of the house (with the buyer putting a 10% downpayment), then why is the company not liable for any loss in property value? This is just one of the inconsistencies I have found in regards to this “co-ownership” model. May Allah forgive us all. It is obvious Abu Yusuf that you have a certain deep-rooted personal issue with me. According to my knowledge in USA all of the so called Islamic Financing Institutions except Ameen Housing Co-op of California, borrow money from same source(s) like other non-islamic mortgage companies. Unless you are interested in supporting Uncle Sam, terminology should not be a breaking point for a deal. 7)     On your point concerning debt, then that will be there irrespective of the permissibility of the transaction.

I just want to know, why is there a difference in the scholars of Deoband and most sunni scholars about buying mortgage house in UK/Western countries. They pretend, at the time of closing, that they first ‘bought’ the house from the seller and then they sold it to you – and they charge you twice the closing costs!! In fact the bank never actually purchases the item. Jazak-Allah khyran Sh Yasir. At least the house can be sold, or foreclosed on, or negotiated for a short sale. or am i wrong??? Make the tone of your message clear The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “The one who takes people’s wealth intending to pay it back, Allaah will pay it back for him, and the one who takes it intending to destroy it, Allaah will destroy him.” Bukhaari (2387). If a person possesses 612.35 grams of silver or 87.479 grams of gold or any currency that equals the value of this amount of gold or silver, and this wealth remains in his possession for a complete year, then on the expiry of this year it will be wajib on him to give Zakah for it.

These institutions are NOT out there to cheat you, defraud you, or trick you. Now the money you get could be more or less than what you had paid over the time. When a client wishes to purchase something, but does not possess the cash with which to purchase it, the so-called Islamic bank enters into the fiction of purchasing the item at its cash price and then selling it to the client on credit. Traditionally it is added after a long thought out logic discussion and decision. Siraj’s take on this topic is sound. The Prophet PBUH has cursed the person who gives Riba, takes Riba, records the transaction of Riba and the 2 witnesses who are during the signing of the contract. ! Also, if they were to sell it for a gain they would also benefit. 2. My point was that there is a fine line between pointing out issues with certain financial institutes and the larger need for non-interest based alternatives. I will try to explain my point of view and explain why Islamic Financing is no different from Conventional Financing. Because it owns it’s share, it has a right to charge rent and that can be based on any bench mark. I have a great deal of distrust of the finance industry in general, and these wacked out contracts in particular. They are not charities – they are in this business to make money – and lots of it – and it is their right to do so. Read the post completely before commenting Finally you could  help a great deal more people by spending 5-10 hours reading a few ijara/murabaha contracts and understanding the Taqi Usmani book. About higher down payments and premiums, it’s the people with bad credit that have to pay more in interest and pay higher down payments, not the reverse – people with better credit ratings get better deals. language that makes it sound like it is not interest. Dear Brother He would have made a profit It is also the declared opinion of the Hanafi school of jurisprudence. 4)     Wrt finding people willing to offer an extended lease with a fixed rent- I’m skeptical that landlords would accept such a condition in metropolitan areas (unless the fixed rent agreed to was much higher than the initial listing), but I’ll take your word for it. It may be valid century ago, but now-a-days you can live good life in rent. There is mention of both Dr. Mahmoud el Gamal (Rice economist and egyptian Muslim but current Houstonite) and Dr. Main ul Qudah both of whom I have corresponded with and discussed Islamic finance with…Dr. Justice Taqi Usmani then posted on his website stating i agree its complex, but the bottom line is a lot of ppl are confused on this issue, and a lot of people have these questions (such as the 3 i mentioned at the end of the article). I am not at all familiar with how Guidance financial works and I suspect that you are 100% justified in your objections. These may sound trivial, but being offered a home loan only needing to put 5% down vs. 20% is a big difference and can require a family to forego necessary expenditures and live frugally for years. You take the profit. 5) Wrt your note on dying with debt, if you frame it in those terms, it’s obviously irresponsible. I would also like to emphasize that the view of some We talked about our projects and then he starts to ask would I like to hang out with him. Now it’s 2 years down the line and the customer’s owner %age has increased to 40% while the FI’s has decreased to 60%. The topic is  difficult and requires endless hours of research. If you ask me “Hey mister millionaire, I want to buy a house and only have 20% can you help me out with 80%?”   You bet I am going to have some preconditions. Consider the following: a client entered into a so-called murabaha transaction with an unnamed Islamic Bank to purchase a house with a market price of $500,000. shakeel. Secondly, no one (at least no one sane and sober) expects financial institutions to ‘serve the community’ without regard for profits. These are standardized agreements that protects the consumers by complying to the US Consumer Compliance Laws. So long as some exist that are somewhat justifiable through ijtihaad, even with the presence of many shortcomings, insha’Allah it is better for one’s akhirah to follow that scholarly ijtihaad rather than surrender to explicitly riba banks that have far little to no scholarly approval. The question is how do we create the same protections for consumers against misrepresentation in fatwa as we do for legalities? After reading your posts I am getting more confused then ever about these Halal financing products. I dont think anyone has any issue with that point. In fact, they are worst to deal with and you will be paying much more premium for the same product. In my opinion, we are not doing a service to the side of the community that cares truly about doing this right by telling them to try out the financial products that exist today. The ‘eid’ community that you mention, at least in my mind, is not a demographic that would even remotely consider Islamic Finance. 'Therefore, if Muslims are not to trade with these invalid contracts and transactions (where extreme necessity and urgent need is involved), then they will end up paying what is required from them (in transactions that involve usury) without receiving any benefit in return. We should be fully Muslim, not half Muslim half Christian. If I am not mistaken, having two transactions in one transaction (and one transaction conditional on another) is also islamically problematic (scholars can clarify it). However, in these countries, what is required of the Muslim is to abide by the Shariah rulings in matters that concerns him in person such as the rules that govern acts of worship, food, drinks and clothes, marriage, divorce, inheritance and so on.If Muslims choose not to deal with contracts involving usury in non-Muslim countries, this might weaken them financially. The Problem is that in the first year when I see a one boy who was in 3rd year I liked him, but I asked Allah’s help and life went back to normal. The bank therefore sold something that it never actually owned – and that is Haram! Syed. may be the islamic concern is not only whether it is benefiting you, but also it is also more benefiting to the oppressive loaners and sustaining them to keep oppressing the ummah. Like most people we don’t have the capability to purchase up front with cash. From my experience, it seems that this is not the case. So please contact me and lets get personal jealousies/insecurities/complaints or whatever else you might have off MM… In the case of you not having my email, contact info at muslimmatters dot org and they’ll get you in touch with me. with no conditions of ijara or otherwise. I should add that I have no knowledge about whether Guidance is operating according to that contract… that would be something which would need to be clarified with their shariah board (their contact information should be readily available). My In other words, does Waleed Idrees thinks there is still some haram in it but we can use it out of necessity? If you somehow are able to save quicker, you may complete the task in 15 years, but by then your kids will have a handful of years to live in the new house before leaving for college, at which point a home that size won’t be necessary….And this is assuming someone has a good salary. There are numerous authentic ahadeeth that makes the idea of riba so repulsive. 1. Is it haram? Disclaimer: I have a contract with Lariba as well as with Guidance Residential. A lot of these “islamic” home contracts are akin to lipstick on a pig. We should be men, not metrosexuals. Karachi Pakistan. Their fatwa page prominently features Taqi Usmani’s name on the top. Alternatively, I could do a rent to own agreement, more typical of ijara. is the essence of riba! Thank you. literacy on financial matters.   With all due respect, if you could atleast make your opinion more public, it can help muslims who look up to you and listen to your lectures to avoid from getting fooled by these tricks. As for a person who dies without possessing any wealth, but who had been determined to pay off his debts, his case is different. Isn’t that kind of using Allah’s name in the wrong way? I was just speaking yesterday with a young brother who knew nothing of islamic financing and had no care for buying a house was now being pressured into it from family. I don’t believe I’ve stated in my posts these people were greedy, though conditioning and family pressure, both outside and after marriage are there. Mu current accommodation is on rent as well. Any suggestions you can give would be much appreciated as we look up to you and listen to many of your lectures. You obviously have some information we don’t. This cannot in fact be possible if the Muslim family works all the time just to cover the expenses of their rented accommodations as well as their living.The second criterion upon which the fatwa is based is the juristic verdict which claims that it is permissible for Muslims to trade with usury and other invalid contracts in countries other than Islamic countries. I literally only use it when I absolutely have to for work, but even within that limited scope of usage I end up using it quite a bit. Say for instance the house cost $100K and it was initially a 50-50 split. I’m going the conventional bank route. The house to be purchased must be for the buyer and his household. Craigslist is full of people who can’t (and likely won’t for many years) sell their homes and would be happy to rent with extended leases and take the guaranteed income. interest.”(2:275) – there are many people in this industry and some are Despite all their flaws, I think we can agree that there is a need for an alternative home buying process that satisfies shariah-compliance. Which only begs the question, why is Taqi Usmani’s name being used if it’s not for marketing purposes? Your comments repeatedly violate our comments policy. Last I checked AMJA endorses Murabaha.On similar lines: what is the permissibility of investing in mutual funds like Amana Mutual Funds. This is a very naive way of looking at things brother. I agree with Br Siraj wholeheartedly… the best alternative is to stay away from all of it. That’s unacceptable. 6)     I’m going to have to take issue with your dichotomizing of Muslims into those who simply lack the iman to refrain from riba mortgages versus those who refrain from home buying entirely. if you have not visited then please checkout http://www.positivemoney.org This is not a charitable sale. I can give myself a better tax deduction by paying rent and keeping the balance, assuming a mortgage and rent rate the same.
