Shaykh Abu Abdir Rahmaan bin Alee al-Hajooree was asked the following question:


What is the ruling on dealing with banks in accepting credit cards because there does not exist another means except accepting these credit cards in buying and selling? Some of the brothers who are expatriates are demanded by the government to accept these credit cards.


In the Name of Allah and may peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, Companions and those who follow his guidance.

Whoever is afflicted with this dealing in the issue of credit cards and the issue of insurance and dealing with it along with the difficulty in that, there is no harm in that”

[Questions from Brothers who are Expatriates in America recorded on the night of Jummah 15 Shawwal 1436 H in Makkah]
