An aspect of the end times that people may not take into consideration is that the Creator will take into account those who oppress others through interest.
Quran 2:275
Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, "Trade is [just] like interest." But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah . But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.

Why does Allah seem so upset about interest whereas if a physical product changes hands and the seller adds a margin to that product, he is OK with it? I can see that crippling interest is just another form of robbery but what about "regular" interest?

Are you talking about the difference of a limited profit versus interest @Red Sky at Morning ? Surely you can see the slavery of compound interest Red. To me the difference is clearly evident especially when you see how it enslaved entire populations and countries. I do not see people crying blood about profit.;)

"Praise be to Allah.
Permissible muraabahah is where the financier (the one who has the money) buys something for one hundred million – as in the question – then when he has acquired it and taken possession of it, he sells it to your friend for payment in instalments over ten years, with a profit of 4%, for example; then your friend can keep the product or sell it in the marketplace for cash at a lower price, in order to obtain the cash.

This is muraabahah which is valid according to Islam. For more information, please see the answer to question no.36408. (That link discusses profit @Red Sky at Morning )

But if the financer gives this money (one hundred million) to your friend on the basis that he will take it back from him in instalments, with an increase of 4%, then this is a riba-based loan, which is haraam (forbidden), whether it is called financing or muraabahah. In fact calling it by this name is a kind of confusing and misleading trickery, which is also haraam."

I really meant ordinary interest vs exorbitant interest. Are both haraam?

Yes Red! Kindly watch the videos for this information and worldview.
For a person who can not pay due to illness or unemployment this small amount will compound.
These money lenders have an economic order that is slated for destruction. God willing.

“O you who believe! Do not devour Riba (e.g. interest), making it double & redouble, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, that you may be successful.”
Qur’an 3:130

Yeah well here is another fine example of the discrepancy between YHWH and Allah.

According to YHWH usury is fine... not between the Israelites but between Israelites and gentiles.

So again YHWH simply is not Allah.

So who in hell is Allah ?

Would a Just Creator allow for these kinds of rules? BIgotry and Usury?
These rules were written by imperfect men or lying scribes.
Supporting the avarice of the money lenders? Making those who have little money poorer. You would defend that? smh

It's written in the Scriptures that YHWH allows the use of usury... and it's nothing wrong with usury as long as it's not abused.

No this is not the Talmud... but the Holy bible.

As long as usury is not abused it's a win win... usury and interest go hand in hand so no usury no interest.

You do your thing however there are people of all walks of life including yours who are against usury.
There are entire Youtube channels with content regarding Christians against usury:)

God willing these people and their systems will collapse. Glad tidings for those who care.

In the book of God of Israel usury is fine as long as the borrower is not poor and in the book of god of Islam usury is not fine at all.

Well that is the elite plan to collapse old systems to bring in a new world order.
