The Board considers that this transaction is not legally permissible for the following reasons:
First: It involves riba explicit goal to increase the amount of the loan, called (Rollover charge), it is riba is haraam, the Almighty said: (O ye who believe, fear Allah and give up what remains of usury, if ye are believers * But if ye take a notice of of war from Allah and His Messenger more than your capital sums: Deal not unjustly or meaning) / 278 279.
Secondly: The requirement of the mediator on the client that his business for him, which leads to a combination of advances and netting (brokerage), which is the meaning of a combination of advances and sale, which is forbidden religiously in the words of the Prophet peace be upon him: (does not solve the loan and sell ... ) Hadith narrated by Abu Dawood (3 / 384) and al-Tirmidhi (3 / 526) and said: a saheeh hasan hadeeth. In this case he has benefited from the loan, and unanimously agreed that every loan which brings a benefit is riba is haraam.
Third: The trade that are in this transaction in the global markets often include many of the contracts legally prohibited, including:

3 - buying and selling currencies are often arrested without a legal permit to act.
4 - Trading in options and futures contracts, the Resolution of the Islamic Fiqh Academy in Jeddah, No. (63) at its sixth session, the options are not permissible legally, because the object is not money or not really benefit financially may Alaotaiad him .. The same applies to futures and indexes.
5 - The mediator in some cases, sell what he owns, and sell what has not forbidden in Islam.
IV: Why This transaction involves economic damage to the transacting parties, especially the customer (investor), and the economy of the community in general. Because it is based on expansion in debt, and the risk, and include it often to deceive and mislead and rumors, monopoly and Njc and the vagaries of a strong and rapid rates, in order to get rich quick and get the savings of others illegally, making them as consuming people's wealth unlawfully, in addition to money transfer society from the real productive economic activities to these risks is not economically productive, and may lead to severe economic turmoil caused losses and damage to society is enormous.
