Muhatram Shabbir Bahi Sahaib, AA. I am very glad you have started this thread. Here is my question in pure learning spirit and not trying to point out mistakes in Qur’an. AlrRiba commonly understood or misunderstood as “interest”/usury. My question is. How this word should be spelled in Arabic? One finds written in Qur’an as الرِّبَا (from www.openburhan.com site), الرّبوا (in, Holy Quran by Taj company LTD. English Translation by Pickthall and Urdu by Maulana Fatheh Mohhammed Jallendhri certified by Hafiz Abdul Rauf, no year of publication given). Finally, Lane says it is also رِبًا or رِبًوا with lots of references (Lane part 3 page 1023).
