Answer


Alsalam alikom, I'm a dentist working for a large dental corporate. They do offer stocks in that dental corporate worth $250000. Also they do finance that amount of money through their bank to facilities buying these stocks. It will be a loan for 10 years with % 6.5 interest rate.  By owning the stocks will be getting a monthly bonus from the dental office production  that varies each month. That monthly bonus will be paying off the loan. So i won't be paying out of my pocket.  Until completely the loan is paid off.  Jazakom allah kheer wanted to know if it's halal or not?

Assalam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

If financing for purchasing stocks is provided at the cost of 6.5% interest rate or any rate other than 0.0% then it would not be allowed because this finance charge is considered interest and it is forbidden in Islam.

And Allah knows best.
