It is the express and stated aim of Islam is to work it’s way into America and eventually place a Muslim president in the White House. Or have you already forgotten that our current president has said that the “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam“?
A compass pointing the way to Mecca is embedded in a new MasterCard aimed at Muslims
Gulf state-owned bank Al Hillal in the United Arab Emirates has rolled out the new bank card which complies with Islamic laws banning charging interest on loans in a bid to appeal to the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims.
Islamic law or Shariah forbids ‘riba’, the charging of interest on loans, because it enables the rich to exploit the poor, creates social and economic tension and encourages risk, according to scholars.
MasterCard spokesman James Issokson on NBCNEWS: ‘We continue to see a growing demand, especially in the Middle East, for Islamic banking in general, and more specifically in our case, for cards that are Shariah-compliant in accordance with the tenets of the Islamic faith.’
As well as the compass which allows the cardholder to orientate themselves towards prayers five times a day, the new MasterCard has other benefits.
Cardholders have access to travel vouchers to pay for the Haj pilgrimage to Mecca, which Muslims are required to do at least once in their lifetime if they have the means.
Mr Issokson said: ‘A percentage of the money spent using the card is donated to local charities.’ source – Info Nigeria
