The social interpretation of the verses of usury to understand the reasons for its absolute prohibition
Farajullah Mir Arab
Abstract:   (1688 Views)
The Holy Qur'an considers usury as unlawful way of acquisition of wealth that stems from excessive demand [for worldly pleasures]. This economic practice is common in the society and some people are looking for ways to legalize and justify it. Social commentators have deduced the absolute prohibition of this economic act, which is the subject matter of the present study. The descriptive-analytical study of the problem, with a social orientation in the interpretation of the verses of usury, shows that usury has many dire consequences such as: promoting hatred and intensifying class distance, destroying the economic system, endangering the material and spiritual health of society, destroying human capital, moral anomalies, shortening the life of society, weakening religiosity, and etc. To get rid of such awful consequences, usury has been prohibited. For those consequences would in turn cause productive forces to be discouraged and the victims to take revenge from the usurer. It will result in the unbroken cycle of conflict in the society. For this reason, God Almighty has termed getting involved on usury and as declaration of war against Himself and His Messenger.
Keywords: Verses of usury, Social Interpretation, Absolute Prohibition of Usury.
