Question

Is the monthly maintenance fee charged by banks considered interest ? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

No, the monthly maintenance fee that the bank charges is not interest. This is a service fee that the bank charges for maintaining your account and the services that it renders.
