In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
All Praise and Thanks are due to God
God's perfect peace and blessings upon His final Prophet and Messenger Muhammad, his family, his companions, and all those who follow his way.
IANA is from an Arabic word meaning “help".
By God's Grace, since 2009 IANA has provided interest-free loans to ease peoples’ financial burdens while trying to support the common good.
"God is Pure and only accepts that which is pure..." [Hasan; Muslim and Tirmidhi]
"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 promote the honest and objective search for and application of the truth. Such efforts will be courageous, visionary and holistic in seeking to serve the public interest 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 it is a means to seek and serve and know our Lord. As such, and in accordance with the teachings of Islam, we hope to benefit God's creation by providing ethical financial services that are community-rooted and for the common good; safeguarded by justice, beautified in mercy. These services are embedded in basic Islamic principles regarding wealth, stewardship, and ethical 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.
Kindly pray that these efforts are sincere, guided, and blessed. Peace.
ACTIONS ARE ONLY BY INTENTIONS. - Prophet Muhammad, God's peace and blessings upon him
