Ruling 2088

A father and his child, and a wife and husband can take interest from one another. Similarly, a Muslim can take interest from a disbeliever (kāfir) who is not under the protection of Islam. However, an interest based transaction with a disbeliever who is under the protection of Islam is unlawful. Of course, after the transaction has taken place, one can take more from him if giving interest is permitted in his religion.
