Riba (Interest): Literally: riba: addition, growth, elevation. Allah, the Exalted, said: "You see the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour down rain upon it, it is stirred [to life], it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth in pairs" Surah alHajj (22):5. Anyone who transacts in usury (interest) is known as a murabi (usurer). Technically: any excess compensation without any corresponding counter-value recognized by the Shari'ah. Hanafis: "stipulated excess without a counter-value in a sale". Shafi'is: "an agreement for a specific recompense whose equivalence to the counter-value is unknown according to the standards of the Shari'ah at the time of the transaction, or with a delay in the exchange of either or both counter-values." Some jurists use the term riba for any prohibited sale or any illicit wealth, no matter how it was earned. Riba is divided into riba of debts and riba of sales.
