Salam O Rahmat,
We know that establishing Salaat and providing Zakaat is only possible in a Quranic society and patchwork won't work, but what about our current Capitalistic societies..
[Please excuse my question, I know that people have asked about Riba million times from you]:
I found your reply to Mr. Faisal Iftikhar's post (I pasted it below) some days ago and thought on it.
Dear Dr. Shabbir, Can we work at bank, or take interest of bank account, rent out a house, investing etc since we live in capitalism today?
As I said, in my humble understanding, RIBA also means Capitalism.
Any kind of usury or interest is an integral part of the Capital System.
Currently it is impossible for any person to remain untouched by usury in some form. I recall a saying of the exalted Prophet that times would come when the dust of interest would reach everyone on the planet.
Can we change the system? Wait until the world returns to the Qur'anic System of Just Economic Order. ---"
