very important question which no one addressed is to think why do most of us need mortgage to buy a house.

I am not personally related to anyone there, or have any other transactions with them which could be deemed as a potential conflict of interest. it never existed and is digitally created. Just like Zabiha meat…once declared by the host, we don’t probe further.The burden of sin lies on them.

Just my 2 cents. The site is supervised by Mufti Ismail Moosa. I fully agree with your concerns and questions raised. Wasalaam ‘Alaikum Asalamualaykum, Then after one year, the homeowner’s payment amounted to him purchasing an additional 25% share of the house such that at that point in time, the homeowner owns 75% of the house and the institution 25%.

That is the general address for Darul Ifta and the letter will NOT be opened by Mufti Taqi. In fact the bank never actually purchases the item. If I owned the 85% of the house, why would I allow you to sell it for a loss when I am going to be absorbing most of the loss? It is not that hard. Now the money you get could be more or less than what you had paid over the time. I think selling off the house occurs if you imagine the housing market recovers and banks are lending more freely (as muslims can sell to nonmuslims as well). 2) how much do the contracts change to adjust to regulations in different states?

However, the fatwa does not cover taking up mortgage to buy a house for commercial reasons or for purposes other than buying a personal house for those who do not have one. Mufti Taqi Usmani’s article was referring to a specific fatwa referring to a specific transaction – ‘ijara’ which some companies were misusing. But perhaps an argument can be made that the price increase only occurred in the last year. and then they cave =)  But I assume the best irrespective, and maybe they had a change of heart in their fiqh opinion, which is fine, but let’s not kid ourselves, many of those getting into this are those who couldn’t get approved by the bank as well =D. it can be a good way. to consult someone on it. But now you’re saying they’re not liable for declining property values?! Landlords would probably be less forgiving in granting allowances for them to live without paying or paying a reduced rent. And I’ll repeat, there are also people with poor credit who also go to these institutions who were rejected by conventional banks (which is sad, sub-prime lending was a major factor in housing market tanking 2006 – 2008). As a board member of an islamic finance organization, I can provide a bit of insight into these issues. We need ot ask *why* he said it and how it applied to their times – and how it applied ot ours.

If the burden is shifted to kids who are now working and out of college, they can sell the home and divide the money amongst themselves to help their own future costs (marriage costs, family costs, perhaps a home of their own, etc.). are many scholars who have made efforts to come forth with guidance on Islamic Also, there are tax breaks for “interest payments”, which can be very significant. I have to disclose here that I actually have a contract with a US based Islamic finance institution. We have a stern warning to deliver to those scholars of Islam who persist in defending the so-called murabaha transactions of Islamic Banks today. So the issue is how is the capital gains ($50K) on the house split between the home owner and the financial institution. Now I own 15% of the house, and the bank owns 85%. I wasnt necessarily advocating for people to buy homes, and agree with you that there are substantial benefits that come from renting over buying, particularly on the issue of flexibility and needing to move. My local masjid imam researched and recommended it so I can come out of the traditional loan. Consider the following: a client entered into a so-called murabaha transaction with an unnamed Islamic Bank to purchase a house with a market price of $500,000. While I do not give an ‘official fatwa’ on this matter, I have always said (and those whom I trust and are more knowledgeable than me in Islamic finance have told me) that these contracts resemble ‘hiyal’ (‘tricks’) – it is as if the basic structure of a mortgage remains the same, but some clauses are added here and there to make it appear that it’s legitimate. But let’s be clear – taking money out on a debt because you’re poor and dying is not the same as someone making $40k – 120k or more in the US (thus putting the person in the top 1% of the world earners and possible living standard at $40k) and taking out a loan of $300k – 400k for a home that is unneeded.   > Islamic Mortgages / Halal Mortgages  > Knowledge  > Shariah debate  > The debate  > Buying Houses with mortgages: Ruling European Council for Fatwa and Research. I think the questions you’ve raised in the article are valid ones, and need to be discussed, but I think it’s important for us to not dismiss the entire industry because of the contractual shortcomings of many Islamic banks. I just want to know, why is there a difference in the scholars of Deoband and most sunni scholars about buying mortgage house in UK/Western countries. The original fatwa only lays the groundwork of how they intend to operate… ensuring that the fatwa is acted upon is the duty of the shariah board. With due respect to scholarship, they as all others are guilty until proven innocent, but practically speaking, they are human beings, and I cannot judge anyone’s intention, but I can acknowledge they are prone to mistakes, prone to errors of judgment, and prone to making decisions that are not in the best long-term interest of the Muslim community due to varying levels of pressure. Can you share his fatwa? But from your point of view, at least on the day of judgement you can say that you tried your best and perhaps even paid for your principles. About dying in debt, you may notice in my first post I purposefully left aside the question of permissibility because I don’t feel it’s my place to really talk about it, I’ve engaged with my own thoughts after you mentioned it, and I added this to the list of disadvantages of home ownership. Both had a good chuckle at the nonsensical setup. Justice Taqi Usmani then posted on his website stating I think we should follow this opinion, it appear that everyone is fine with it, this is the danger when scholar’s start debating complex matter’s in front of regular Public, i chalange anyone if he or she at least read Taqui Usmani Book about islamic finance. I want peace. You cannot NOT have a bank account. Almost everything I learnt in Finance courses in graduate school is problematic under the light of the Q&S. Bottom line = We are in need of some serious islamic finance knowledge. appear to be a ruse designed to promote conventional interest-based practices And if I couldn’t have saved enough, then I would’ve stayed in an apartment or even in the streets rather than pay a dollar of riba. In a declining balance contract, say for instance that initially, the purchase price of the contract was split 50-50 between the homeowner and the financial institution. Having property that you can call your own, that you can give to your children, that you own the rights to it’s appreciation, are almost fundamental to living in these societies. My fear is that if we ‘support’ them through our dollars, they won’t increase ‘research’ into finding better ways, but rather continue on with what, in their view, “works” —from a profit perspective. Something is better than nothing… especially if today’s flawed attempts can be developed into something proper tomorrow. Many of the top scholars that are actively engaged in Islamic finance But, I want to get a solution for my this problem as soon as possible. *There was no interest in England till 1500. In point #3, you’re now telling me that I’m making a big deal about the costs of owning a home, but that was my point precisely and which you’re now repeating – depending on which factors you focus on, you will find benefit and harm both ways. If not, then its consequence is riba – a consequence nearly every Muslim understands regardless of their level of scholarship. 4)     Wrt finding people willing to offer an extended lease with a fixed rent- I’m skeptical that landlords would accept such a condition in metropolitan areas (unless the fixed rent agreed to was much higher than the initial listing), but I’ll take your word for it. I do not possess any extra knowledge of economics or finance… heck I don’t even work for a bank!! If we give sincere answers to the questions in discussion, we will see that the They couldn’t when you were alive, they’ll have to sell the house, and you and I both know it won’t go right away – how long can a Muslim handle the next beginnings of the next life with such a huge debt over their head, assuming it was halaal? processing interest-based transactions). For those interested in this topic, there was a recent resolution from AMJA in Oct 2014 regarding the Islamic Mortgage issuing instiutions, please visit: http://www.amjaonline.org/en/articles/entry/amja-resident-fatwa-committee-resolution-about-islamic-home-financing-companies-in-the-us#comments. i believe you have a real problem here, because from the outside looking in, it looks like you receive interest on savings but do not want interest on your borrowings. Korangi Industrial Area. Mashallah very useful discussion. For me to invest in this business, I absolutely have to get the return that the market will generally give for this risk. As you can appreciate, telling the difference between the two is crucially important, because permissible solutions are…well..permissible, even if they resemble impermissible transactions in many ways, making it difficult for non-specialists to distinguish. of most scholars actively indulging in this issue, and a wide variety of Thank you. 4. Are buyers willing to give more? For example, Guidance on their website says that they share risk. But even in this, I would seek 5% above and beyond any taxes and insurance, so if you want me to share in that, then I would just make that part of the costs for me and you would basically pay more monthly payment to me in order for me to help in other taxes, etc. However, the way that its structured now, both parties will not share in the loss. On the note of dying in debt, perhaps there are scenarios in which one could transition the debt so as to mitigate the potential of dying in the state of debt. Dar al-Ifta al Misriyyah is considered among the pioneering foundations for fatwa in the Islamic world.It has been the premier institute to represent Islam and the international flagship for Islamic legal research. Bottom line… Having a Mufti sign off on a contract does not make it valid… and not having a Mufti sign off on a contract does not make it invalid. What I mentioned was my own speculation, and perhaps even making an excuse for them, and maybe you have as well with your own statement, so what we’re really debating are excuses for something that really is inexcusable. with no conditions of ijara or otherwise. My way of dealing with our scholarship is trust, but verify as well. So it is OK to do something CLEARLY haram that EVERY-one (except Qaradawi ) thinks is haram, is repeatedly condemned strongly in the Quran and in the hadith…….instead of doing something that quite LARGE  number of people think is very much halal (me being one of them). I am confident that the brothers and sisters can do it by Allah Mercy and Aid! as an example, we all put up with shortcomings from our masajid because at the end of they day they’re trying to HELP the community (as flawed as it may be). in the Fatwa the basic principles underlying the Scheme. They are not charities – they are in this business to make money – and lots of it – and it is their right to do so. I dont think anyone has any issue with that point. Could you please share it with us? Transaction of interest with the non-Muslims in Darul Harb was allowed by Imam Abu Hanifa subject to certain conditions but the majority of the Fuqaha including the Hanafi jurists have not accepted it and the Fatwa has always been given on its impermissibility. Prohibiting usury is a matter that concerns the host non-Muslim countries, and which Muslim communities can do nothing about it. So I am 100% against riba, don’t get me wrong here. WOW! Like your home will not be foreclosed, La Riba will give you time to get stable financially. According to my knowledge in USA all of the so called Islamic Financing Institutions except Ameen Housing Co-op of California, borrow money from same source(s) like other non-islamic mortgage companies. Salam Adil Bhai, can you please give us the email for Taqi Usmani. 4. authority of a scholarly body needs to be established, which well-intended Even in your worst case scenario of shifting the burden to an entire family of people who aren’t working, how would rent change any of that? Apple, Microsoft etc.) I realized this when my ‘halal mortgage’ was sold to another bank: I am on the hook for the full “loan” amount regardless of the value of the investment (i.e. Either equate riba with interest and live pre-modern lives like Amish. Mufti Taqi […] But at what expense? You might say: “But what about my daughter? I owe a principal now of $90,000 that I can “buy back my shares” of the house, and I will pay rent (interest) while i’m buying back my shares since i’m living in the house. do you know if the follow up fatwa is available online? NO! This is what the Hanafi scholars have explicitly stated, such as in Bahr al-Raiq, Hashiyah ibn ‘Abidin, and other texts, as well as the other scholars. It’s like a masjid where the board does something really stupid, messes over the masjid, wastes a lot of money, hires a bad imam or something – and when community members call them out on it, the board labels them as “fitnah makers”. This brings us to the point the author mentioned above i-e you incur the loss not the bank, which I think is fine because if the value of the house is increased and you end up selling the house due to non payments, the bank doesn’t take profit. I hate bankers and their “financial instruments”. On a related note, I just looked up the Shariah board of guidance and it shows Mufti Taqi as still being on the board. But There’s a joke amongst Muslim scholars in the west about LaRiba needing to be called Na’amRiba. If you look at it superficially, you can very well say that their programs are just like conventional mortgages. Is fraud being committed in the name of Islamic finance… absolutely. Also, when it comes to buying, many counties have generous first-time buyer benefits that allow them to qualify for low-priced homes at low interest rates. Since stock-holders are considered owners of companies and since all companies (i.e. Up til this point, no one has actually addressed all 3 questions, instead its just been a lot of back and forth on other issues. The most common one I’m familiar with is stock investing, and I can tell you that investing in the stock market is far from a guaranteed return. Often times we dont understand the regulatory hurdles encountered by these organizations where they are trying to jam islamic square pegs into interest based round holes. I live in the DC Metro and am not as familiar with what other metropolitan areas have to offer, but in my county (and surrounding counties) there are first time buyer programs that qualify individuals to purchase homes at prices $50-$75k less than the listed price. I’m certain many of these scholars feel a sense of responsibility in facilitating halal alternatives for the Muslim community. Help us get to 1000 supporters before 2020 ends. So that seems to answers question about how often they check shariah For others, they may save for part of their kids education, encourage their kids to work and save in their teenage years (which I did as well), knock out the first two years of school in community college for drastically reduced prices, and then continue on with a combination of subsidized loans and pell grants (with the assumption no grants will be available). From a factual perspective, most of what you’ve stated are either ideal scenarios, or neglecting the full financial context – sure, you can itemize, get low interest rates, and get plenty of benefit, but net-net, you’re still in the negative upfront for many years and may or may not be saving if you rent and invest instead, and ignore many many costs that come with either purchasing a new or used home (repairs, upgrades, servicing and maintenance, taxes, etc).   Shifts in positions are not only a product of convenience. in short there is no such thing as Islamic Financing neither in US nor in Pakistan. Because of that, we refer to scholars for their insight on huge decisions like buying a house and if it’s being done in a legitimate manner or not. Sounds not quite shariah compliant to me. This is just one of the inconsistencies I have found in regards to this “co-ownership” model. Unfortunately this is a fact and the Muslim consumer simply needs to be aware of this and make an educated purchase. Question: Assalaam alaikum, What is the method of Salah in Hanafi mathab? If we look at objectives, then the objective of not indulging in riba is because it is exploitive, and is the opposite of giving charity. A lot of these lenders are ran wolves in sheep clothing with employees & customers who have been mislead as early as coming in touch with their marketing material on their website. As muslims, we need to be honest. However, there is one point of the classic musharaka agreement which the brothers often have confusion about and perhaps this is what you meant to say instead. Is there a hadith that says anyone one that participates, witnesses, help collect it ect.. Doesnt this make a need? Here is the  statement from him (taken from his website), and then we’ll delve into its importance below: This is for information of all concerned that I have been receiving correspondence from various places enquiring whether I have authorized any Ijarah contracts of certain financial institution in America, Australia and Canada. I will try to explain my point of view and explain why Islamic Financing is no different from Conventional Financing. They call it murabaha!   That means the Islamic bank owns 90% of the house, and i own 10%. A $300k property today could be $350 in ten years, and as you probably know, home prices trend upwards as a rule (minor dips in recession occur, but rarely subsist). THat they ‘technically’ owned the title to the house for five minutes before transferring the house to me? The other reason why I am swayed towards it being Halal is the fact that the Bank Owns the property with you in a partnership, it is not lending you money, it is purchasing the property with you and it will share any losses that take place if the property looses its original value. So my suggestion for those who are serious about this issues if we can stop the banks from printing money, trust me all of us will be able to buy a house within few years of savings. 1) How often are updated contracts reviewed and approved by a shari’ah board, and which scholars have signed off on the actual contract being used by an Islamic finance company? Islamic finance did not exist until couple of decades and has made great strides in providing Muslims with options that did not exist before. Also, at that point it will make it clear that they were misleading, falsifying or simply defrauding the consumer, which makes them susceptible to other legal accountability. For example, there might be properties next to a key location (your work or your masjid) that you can’t rent. Amad, when you say “arguments such as Muslims don’t need houses are misguided in the practical sense” makes me wonder what you would reply to our Rasool when he told us to be in this world like a traveller who just sat down to rest for a bit or when he said that Muslims are like strangers in this world. Would it be fair is YOU the 20% owner decided to rent the property to a third party and collected the rent by your self or is it more fair to share the rent with me co-owner? The bank then repossessed the house and sold it on the open market for $500,000. Yes, I know I know, we MBAs are taught to think about money and practicality and pragmatism and profit. In the meantime the summary of the content: Make Rasulullah your role model In the above example, the homeowner is giving up shared responsibility for the loss but gaining control of the property whereby they can decide whent to sell it. 4) On the note about not getting approved by a regular bank, considering the unfavorable stipulations present in Islamic Finance contracts (higher down payments, higher monthly payments, etc), I’d assume these people would have little trouble getting a loan from a regular bank.
