Assalamualaykum I would like to know what ruling do we have regarding Islamic finance in the UK. gatehouse Bank are one of the new providers of Islamic finance in UK. There is also a broker company who get the finance for you called halal options. If you can clarify ruling on this issue and what advice you can give which can help us stay away from interest related mortgages.
Currently we have not investigated these finance providers and therefore cannot issue a ruling on their products. We would advise consulting their shari’ah team directly and addressing any concerns you may have with them. If you feel content with the explanation they have provided in relation to their products being shari’ah compliant, then it would be permissible for you to take out their products, relying on their shari’ah team.
