Muslims have long excluded themselves from many savings and investment opportunities, Muslims do not partake in interest-based investments or savings and are mandated to take our debt obligation very seriously, that every transaction must be written down and a payback date agreed upon. As Muslims, such tools are not available for the 21st century.
