Those who consume interest cannot stand ( on the day of resurrection) except as one stands who is being beaten by satan into insanity. That is because they say, “ trade is (just) like interest.” But Allah has permitted trade and forbidden interest. So whoever has recieved an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair resist with Allah. But whoever returns to (dealing in interest or usury) those are the companions of the fire; they will abide eternally therein.  [Surah Al-Baqarah, 275]
