Your ijara mortgage and what you need to know about carbon monoxideOctober 22, 2015 at 12:30 pm
With an ijara mortgage in place you are sharia compliant and you might think invincible, but that’s far from the case as a new homeowner. Carbon monoxide is an odorless poisonous gas produced by incomplete combustion of fuel like natural gas, oil and even kerosene. It’s important to keep in mind that CO produces many different symptoms that all resemble the flu and have a range from red eyes and headaches to nausea and upset stomach. There are several different sources of CO in the house including broken gas furnaces and gas stoves as well as water heaters and clothes dryers. You showed a lot of due diligence with your ijara mortgage and it’s important to do the same when making sure the appliances in your house are in good working order. Ijara financing will keep you away from riba but not necessarily save you from the ravages of CO. Keep in mind that looking after your CO detectors is basically the same as keeping smoke detectors in good working order.
