Is it permissible for the Muslim to deal with Riba (interest) in a society that is based on Riba in its dealings?


It is not permissible for a Muslim to deal with Riba, even if the society is based on Riba. He or she has to change this evil action as much as they can and if they cannot, move away from that society to distance oneself from this evil, lest the punishment that befalls them, befall a Muslim too. Moving away will mean not embracing the evil practice.
