  1. Very relevant course


    My expectations for taking this course have been met. I have started implementing what I learned from the course in my everyday life. Every Muslim should take this course because it will benefit them in this world and the hereafter. I feel the course will be more beneficial if the notes are shared with us/students. Thank you.

  2. Well-structured informative course for everyone


    The course explains in simple terms the basics of ethical and unethical financial transactions in light of Quran and Prophetic hadithes. I believe it is beneficial for everyone, Muslims or non-Muslims or Muslim converts, who would like to have a sound idea about Islamic view on various transactions involving buying, selling, depositing, investing, etc. Step by step, the course sheds light on the necessity and possibility to avoid such a destructive phenomenon as Riba.
