No-interest MasterCard Aimed at Devout Muslims

Among the various rules imposed by Sharia Law, usury is strictly forbidden, meaning that a devout Muslim looking into getting a credit card would not be able to without breaking his or her religious rules; however, since trade is permitted, these Islamic-friendly Mastercards meet the requirements of Sharia law by being prepaid and therefore interest free, working around the issue of usury.
