Question

Asalamualiakum, brother last week i
heard a shaykh from bahrain say that
riba is greater than shirk or i thonk he
said murtad. Can you please explain
how and give evdience to your answer.
May allah reward you!

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.
Riba (interest and/or usury) is a grave
major sin but it is absolutely lesser
than Shirk [associating partners to
Allah] because there is no greater sin
than Shirk.
However, a person who deals with Riba
is sinful and deserves the Punishment
of Allah which is being prevented from
His Mercy and entering Hellfire if Allah
wishes to punish him. Nonetheless, he
is not an apostate and he is not
considered as committing Shirk unless
he believes that Riba is lawful after it
has been confirmed to him that it [Riba]
is forbidden.
Allah Knows best.
