We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear sister, indeed any trade that involves interest or Riba is haram in Islam and any income from such trade is also haram.

Dealing with Riba will lead one to some bad consequences like supplications are not answered, punishment in hell, the sin of incest, Allah and his Rasool (PBUH) declares war with the one indulged in it etc.

So you have to guide your husband to righteousness with ‘hikmah’, show him the verses of the Glorious Quran which talk about interest (Riba), explain everything about it to him or take help of whosoever can influence him. Make a lot of supplications. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
