Why @IFGuru is Wrong About Islamic Mortgages

I've long been critical of today's Islamic mortgages, calling for major reforms. Despite this, I've seen them become even more entrenched, often using loopholes to appear riba-free.

IFG has a different view. They not only support but also invest in Islamic mortgages, defending their current setup.

This video aims to address IFG's points in a straightforward way.

No matter your stance on Islamic mortgages, I hope you find the insights valuable.

As always, Allah knows best.
