How to Identify Riba (interest): Buying a Car Example

< YouTube link >

In this video, we talk about Riba (interest/usury) and how to spot it in everyday transactions.

Using a common example of buying a car, we illustrate how one transaction can be done as permissible trade, while another can entail Riba from a loan or money-for-money arrangement. This can be hard to spot if you're not familiar with it, but by the end of this video, you'll be able to recognise Riba confidently, insha'Allah.
