Sources of Shariah: Quranic Verses on Riba Surah Al-i- Imran: (3:130) In Surah Al-i-'Imran the prohibition of riba is laid down in the following words: "O those who believe do not eat up riba doubled and redoubled." *Al‐ i ‐' Imran 3:130] This verse is estimated to have been revealed sometime in the 2nd year after Hijra, because the context of the preceding and succeeding verses refers to the battle of Uhud which took place in the 2nd year after Hijra. This verse contains a clear prohibition for the Muslims and it can safely be said that it is the first verse of the Holy Qur'an through which the practice of riba was forbidden for the Muslims in express terms. 14 Islamic Banking

Sources of Shariah: Quranic Verses on Riba Surah Baqarah: (2:275-281) O those who believe, fear Allah and give up what still remains of the riba if you are believers. But if you do not, then listen to the declaration of war from Allah and His Messenger. And if you repent, yours is your principal. Neither you wrong, nor be wronged. And if there be one in misery, then deferment till ease. And that you leave it as alms is far better for you, if you really know. And be fearful of a day when you shall be returned to Allah, then everybody shall be paid, in full, what he has earned. And they shall not be wronged." *Al‐ Baqarah 2:275‐281+ 17 Islamic Banking
