Someone did a presentation on this in law school, referencing Canon law and such. Probably should have paid closer attention because if they want to hate on usury this much someone pass me the sign in sheet for Islam.

No, but I had to learn all about Islamic banking when I taught a banking course in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Essentially, the bank buys the house and "leases" it to you, with the lease payments consisting of principal and interest just as if it were a loan.

After you pay the principal off, you own the house.

If you stop making payments, the bank still owns the house and you get nothing back from your payments.

so the no-interest part is BS?

or do they just add fees and service charges to replace interest?

It's all a fixed payment "fee" that is not delineated as principal and/or interest.

Only when you analyze the amount of the payments and the number of payments do you realize the payment is suspiciously similar to a fixed rate mortgage loan consisting of principal and interest.

The basis of Sharia banking is that interest is evil, both for loans and deposits, and must be avoided.

The Quran forbids profiting at the expense of another believer. But they find a way to get around it somehow and still believe they are adhering to the Quran's principles.

That sounds about right. They basically charge you extra and call it a lease payment whereas we call it P&I.

The major difference is that if you default you have zero equity. Amirite? And I imagine refis have some interesting twists, if they exist at all.

Correct.

Crap, I never got to the part about refis. I have no idea if they do that or not or if they do, how they handle it.

These folks haven't figured out running water, plumbing, or how to remove themselves from a shithole (generally speaking of course)...

Why would they have the banking thing figured out?

Correct. I read The Holy Quran in college. Most people think infidels must convert or be killed. They can actually pay a tax to be left alone as non believers.

I believe this was prevalent some time ago as well.

Not anymore!

re: Sharia banking


Here’s where you might want to hide your eyes if you're sensitive:

Muhammad was a pedophile, a murderer and no better than a modern day rapist/drug dealing crack whore. Anyone who follows such teaching is dancing with the devil and I for one couldn’t give a good frick if you’re offended or not. Eventually this entire thing is going to catch fire and when it does, I pray I am still around to be part of it. The medieval punishment I would unleash on these 7th century goat fricking cult members would be legendary.


frick them, frick Muhammad, and frick anyone who thinks otherwise.

Don't hold anything back. Say what you really feel.
