“And whatever Riba (Interest) you give so that it may increase in the wealth of the people, it does not increase with Allah.” (Quran 30:39)
“Those who benefit from interest shall be raised like those who have been driven to madness by the touch of the Devil; this is because they say: "Trade is like interest" while Allah has permitted trade and forbidden interest… Allah deprives interest of all blessings but blesses charity.... O believers, fear Allah, and give up the interest that remains outstanding if you are believers. If you do not do so, then be sure of being at war with Allah and His messenger. But, if you repent, you can have your principal....” (Quran 2:275-280)

In the tenth year of Hijri, Rasulullah SallAllâhu 'alaihi wasallam announced the following decision in detail on the occasion of the Farewell Hajj in a Khutbah (address) delivered at Mina: "Understand well! All the customs and rituals of ignorance have been placed under my feet. Revenge for the mutual murders of ignorance have been relinquished. The first revenge that we relinquish is that of our close relative, the son of Rabi’ah bin Hârith who was murdered by Huzail while he was being fostered in the clan of Banu Sa’ad. Likewise the interest of the time of ignorance has ended and the first interest that has been discarded is that of our uncle, ‘Abbâs. We have discarded all of it." (Saheeh Muslim - reported by Hadhrat Jâbir RadhiAllâhu 'anhu).

This magnificent and famous Khutbah of Hajjatul Wadâ’ holds the position of a constitution in Islâm wherein Rasulullah SallAllâhu 'alaihi wasallam put an end to the taking of revenge of past murders and stopped the taking or giving of past interest amounts.

The leftover water of a dog is impure. If a dog puts its mouth in a utensil, it will become purified after washing it three times. All these will be purified once they are washed. However, it is preferable to wash it seven times and thereafter to scrub it once with sand (or soap) so that it is thoroughly washed.

A man was on trial for murder. The evidence was very strong indicating guilt, but there was no dead body.

In the defense`s closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be convicted, resorted to a trick:
“Ladies and gentlemen, I have a surprise for you all,” the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. “Within two minutes, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom.” He looked toward the courtroom door. The judges, somewhat stunned, all looked on eagerly. Two minutes passed. Nothing happened.

Finally the lawyer said, “Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I therefore put it to you that there is reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty.”

The judge, clearly confused, retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, he returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty.

“But how?” inquired the lawyer. “You must have had some doubt, I saw all of you stare at the door.”

The judge replied: “Oh, we did look, but your client didn`t.”
