Why should people get privileges based on religion in a secular society?

That’s a legitimate question and one that a lot of people have asked including Muslims themselves. 

The reason is discussed in this article I posted. It explains the reason why this issue is being discussed with the Government. 

In regards to your question, others may see it as a privilege but in fact it really isn’t. Muslims aren’t asking for ”special” treatment, per se. This is not to say that the Muslims will be paying back less than the average person. They’re just asking for a system that is merely interest-free. There are many ways around the Shari’ah law and what this consultation achieves is a system that is compatible with it. 

I’m not really sure if you’re familiar with the system in England but the previous loans were based on inflation rates which isn’t conflicting to (some opinions) of Islam. I’m hoping a few of my followers who are more knowledgeable in that regards will clarify that!

So everyone that is jumping on to the bandwagon and saying that this is outrageous and Muslims are getting ”special” treatment really need to look into the matter before attacking. 

Just another thing I would like to point out is that as far as I’m aware, interest is considered unethical in many religions: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, etc. It’s not just a ‘Muslim’ loan, if an alternative loan is provided, I would assume all students will have the choice between the two. 

I hope that answers your question!

Shari’ah-compliant loans.

Guys, please fill out this online form for any chance of the Government to consider Shari’ah-compliant student loans. So far there have only been roughly 2000 people to fill the form in which is appalling!
We need to show the government that interest-based loans are a problem among Muslims and an alternative must be provided! 

For more information and a full guidance on what you’re doing, please follow this link.

Just think about the ease for future Muslims who want to attend university and aren’t hindered by interest-based loans!
This is very much needed!

This article addresses the recent event that occurred in Kansas City. Look at the double standards. We know what the reaction would have been if the attacker shouted ‘Allaahu Akbar’ instead of ‘Heil Hitler’. 

Why isn’t this called a terrorist act? Hypocrites. 

Condolences to all the families that were affected.

If I told you
How many times
I’ve sat alone
On the shower floor,
I promise,
You’d cry too.
