Prophet Muhammad has said, "When poverty enters from one door, faith exits from the other door." Muslims are to express their gratitude toward Allah by pursuing a prosperous life and help their fellow humans by donating some of their good fortunes. Islamic faith encourages entrepreneurship and risk-taking business endeavors.... However, it prohibits Muslims from giving or taking any interest for any type of loans and credit cards. According to the Quran, the interest deprives wealth of God's blessings. Muslims are to invest in socially responsible companies; therefore, investing in companies dealing with alcohol, gambling and alike is prohibited.
