Al-Rayyan bank

Question: What is the ruling on using al rayan bank for mortgage? If it is not permissible which route can someone take to owning a home in the uk using halal methods? بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

Regarding Al-Rayan Bank, Darul Ifta Birmingham’s position is as follows:

“The conclusion of Darul Ifta Birmingham is that Al Rayan Bank’s mortgage scheme should be avoided, but it is better than going to a normal non-Islamic bank. One should avoid it but as a LAST and FINAL resort (i.e. this mortgage stands against another non-Islamic bank’s mortgage”.


Regarding alternatives, we suggest consulting your local Ulema. Kindly refer to the following link for more details:
