Pearl of Wisdom

when asked by Hisham b. al-Hakam about the reason behind the prohibition of usury, replied, 'Were usury to be permissible, people would abandon their trading and other necessities, so Allah prohibited usury in order that man may flee from the unlawful [means of earning] to trade, and resort to buying and selling, and this in turn facilitates borrowing from each other.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 103, p. 119, no. 24
