In reply to comment: What is wrong with lending (see in situ)

Quite a few factual errors in article.

The usury forbidden in the old testament was ribah.

Ribah was a loan of 100 dinar where I kept a fee for originating the loan.

You still owe 100 dinar, but only ever got a portion.

The lender was taking his profit up front instead of receiving rent on his money. Or in addition to.

If a lender offered ribah, one might be suspicious of their respect for tradition and cultural standards. Find someone else. There's no regulation like self regulation.

Free includes debt-free!
