The History of Ansar Personal Loans (Qard Hasana)
The personal loan Fund managed by Ansar Finance Ltd. is built by member donations of a nominal £10 per month. Yes – just £10 per month donation will help build a Fund which will provide the members a personal loan free from any interest whatsoever. Consider there are 2-2.5 million Muslims in Britain, therefore £10 x 2m = £20m per month. The Fund will, God Willing, help everyone avoid riba (interest) over and over again and act as a sadaqa jaariyah for the member. Many of the members have already benefitted from the loan facility and saved themselves hundreds and some even thousands of pounds of interest payments. The chart below shows the cost in interest for a comparable loan (ie. £5000 repayable over a 36 month period) from some of the high street banks. As well as saving money the members have been able to comply with the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah. Ansar Finance has gone from strength to strength since it started in 1994 and is leading the way in interest-free personal loans.
