Mr Mansoor:

It is sad that muslims need non-muslim (and even Jewish owned) banks like Standard Charter, Citi, ABN to have Islamic banking. Are there no instructions in Koran to start an islamic banking system (without the help of the Kaffirs).

These banks have one religion -- making money. Call the system anything you want as long as you let them make money.

Do Islamic banks use Kaffir money like $$ or Eu money? Is there any thing called Halal $$?
