Salaam, I am now slowly practising Islam, I am a qualified mortgage advisor. My query is, i understand interest is haraam and therefore mortgages are haraam. Is it still possible for me on advising/selling mortgages to muslims (knowing that they are aware that it is haram)?
Also what is the position on Islmic mortgages? I have read and heard that it isnt truly "islamic" due to the rent element being guised as interest.
I am confused as to whether i should leave the mortgage industry altogether and start working somewhere else? Or, should i continue to stay at my job, (surely muslim brothers and sisters are aware that a mortgage is haram? if they want to take one out then would i still be punished for advising/selling which mortgage to take out?
What is the ruling on this? I am confused and dont know what to do.
