In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
All Praise and Thanks are due to God, and may God's perfect peace and blessings be upon His final Prophet, Muhammad, his family, his companions, and all those who follow his way.
As-salamu Alaikum! Peace Be Upon You!
IANA is from an Arabic word meaning “help". By God's Grace, since 2009 IANA has provided pure interest-free loans to help ease peoples’ financial burdens while trying to support the common good.
Kindly pray that these efforts are sincere, guided, and blessed. Peace.
"God has permitted commerce and forbidden interest." [Holy Qur'an, 2:275]
Through interest-free loans, Iana aims to help our brothers and sisters avoid interest or if they have fallen in to it, to help them get out of interest-based debt.
Iana aims to serve God through serving humanity by supporting the honest and sincere search for and application of all that is true and beautiful in all spheres of life including: traditional Islamic scholarship, education, community, environment, agriculture, health, economics, law, politics, peace, animal rights, journalism, and more.
The End of Economics
We believe that 'economics' is not an end in and of itself, rather, economics or wealth is a means to seek and serve and know our Lord. As such, we hope to benefit God's creation by providing pure financial services that are community-rooted and for the common good. These services are embedded in basic Islamic principles regarding wealth, stewardship, and pure earning and spending.
Restoring the sacredness of economics is perhaps the only way to restore the sacred balance among all of creation: people, animals, plants and the land, air, and water we all share.
"God is Pure and only accepts the pure."
ACTIONS ARE BY INTENTIONS. - Prophet Muhammad, God's peace and blessings upon him
