You should not leave it to the bank, but rather take it and spend it on any public charity project, without the intention of receiving a reward for it. However, you will receive the reward of not using the interest money for yourself and for the intention of cleansing your wealth from interest.
We rely on our generous community to create a lasting impact and ensure the continuous operations of your Masjid as the gathering place, school, and house of worship for Muslims across the Triangle.
Those who spend their wealth in charity day and night, secretly and openly—their reward is with their Lord, and there will be no fear for them, nor will they grieve.”
– The Holy Quran 2:274
