'O you who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves in vanities; But let there be among you tariff and trade by mutual good will'

Man is a social creature. Nothing contributes more to this claim than the pursuit of wealth, the exchange of goods, and the relationships built upon property ownership and transfer. This two-part series seeks to provide an overview of money, economics, debt, and riba along with practical ways to survive financial crises. It will summarize the various scholarly opinions on riba, its rules, analogues, and the perils of credit and debt. Economics, monetary theory, banking, and cryptocurrency will also be discussed. Please join us for this important series and a down to earth conversation between friends.

This presentation will be LIVE online on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25th at 1:30 pm PST and 4:30 EST.
