Disposing of one bank’s interest from another bank’s account

Nasihah (Advice): Accepting a guarantor for a debt

 

Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: “When a rich man delays in repaying a debt, this is oppression, and if a debt is transferred to a rich man (another rich man agrees to pay it on his behalf), you (the creditor) should accept it.” (Ibn Majah)

Question and Answer:

 

  1. Assalaamualaikum,respected mufti Saheb. I have interest money to dispose off in one bank account. However I do not have access to those funds. Can I dispose of the interest from another account ? Or do I have to dispose of it from the account where it has accrued. Shukran

  1. In the enquired case, it is preferred to dispose of the interest money from the bank that it was accrued in. However, if the interest of one bank account is disposed of from another account or source, it will be permissible to do so. (Shaami 2/290)
