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)
