    Ijtihed is not to turn Haram into Hala even 0,00001% from it. Ijtihed is for things without a clear text (Quaran or Hadith). If every company have Haram revenue, then we should not tolerate 5% but we schould say Investing in those company is HARAM and move on ! Im sorry but im unsubscribing…

    Thirty three percent loan. Which scholars allow are this and is the majority of scholars? So according to this video in order to grow Muslim wealth we should compromise and accept this ijhtad. Please clarify in case I've misunderstood.

    Allah also tells believers in Quran to avoid doubtful matters
    I would invest only in zero debt companies that are not dealing in any percent of haraam income. Not 5% , not 1%.

    I am surprised that you point the element that make forex haram and just ignore the same elements in stock so called "ïnvestment" does it disapear the 2 contracts in one rule that made forex haram? is short selling hallal for the stock you are shorting as "investment"? I fear a personal interest in Stock Markets is the fule that is guiding you more than what is permisable based on the list of rules you provided in your is forex trading halal, you can't simply apply the rules in that setting and simply ignore them or say the haram part is less than a certain % so it is permissable if that is correct then please mention the contract of owning a stock and please define your ownership of that stock without your other "sub" contracts within your contract of buying that stock which will prohibit you from almost all the true owners of that share/stock rights!

    Investing isn’t haram😂. With gambling, you take a chance on a event for a certain result. With stocks, you buy an asset, in this case, a share. That asset now belongs to you until you decide to sell that asset. As long as the company you are investing in isn’t an alcohol company or a pornography company, where is the haram?😂 people confuse investing and gambling ffs

    Halal means forbidden. "Tolerable level of haram debt is permissible” seems like an oxymoron. If this is actually true then what tolerable level of haram food, bribery, or adultry is permissible? This is what I believe is stretching the boundaries of religion for personal agenda.

    The other argument that if Muslims are only investing in zero debt companies then they only have access to a tiny market of investment is also not a good one. With food I can understand that Muslims should eat at halal places and if none are available then look for next best alternatives as it is a matter of survival. However, investments are not basic necessities of life and one can live without them rather than invest in haram things like riba/interest.

    You yourself mention that the 30% number is something the scholars have come up with without any religious backing. The one hadith provided is stretched to meet personal agenda. This is what is happening in Muslim world where personal interests and agendas are Halal-ing evils like honor killings, riba, and bribery.

    Lastly, about the 5% rule, if I work at a company for 40 hours a week and 38 of those hours are spent doing the assigned work that completely abide by the Islamic rules and company policies but the other 2 hours are spent sexually harassing other coworkers. Do you think my employer or anyone else would say “its fine, he is just using 5% of his time for forbidden activities” or that "he deserves the weekly pay for the full 40 hours"?. Even non-Muslims will disagree with it.
