AsSalamu Alaikum and welcome to another episode of forgotten Sooners. Today's episode deals with the Sunnah related to paying off a debt or paying someone back.
It is narrated inside a body and second Muslim that the president of what's owed a man a camel, and that man came back demanding that he be paid back and another person I've heard this he told the companions go find a camel similar to the one that he gave me and give it to him, the companions came back and said, we can't find a camel like that.

that give it to him, for the best view are those who repay their debts in the best way. So what we learn from this is that it is actually sunlight is something good that when we repay someone, we give them more than what they gave us. Now, before you jump the gun and go run off with the sun, there's a few disclaimers that need to be made. First of all, something like this cannot be stipulated when the loan is given. So a person can't say Hey, I'll give you $10. But when you repay me, give me $12 that is what is known as Riba that's interest and that is not permissible. Also a person whose debt is being repaid, they can't demand that so they can't come and say, Hey, I gave
you $10 but you know what you should give me $12 back once again, that is anybody that has interest and is not permissible. So we're talking about here is that a person who is repaying the loan that they do it out of the goodness of their own heart that they gave a little bit more or extra, obviously, as long as they're able to do so. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best until next time, I sit down with a comb, whatever the law he will, but I can't do
