We call upon all responsible citizens of the world to embrace RIFCON. The struggle against Ribais a continuous and gargantuan task but for us, we trust that “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”RIFCON began in November 2010 through the convening of the 1st World Conference on Riba.
The conference unanimously agreed that the world needs to better understand Riba. This was further agreed upon by the participants of the 2nd World Conference on Riba held in July 2011 and the call to setup a think tank to research the subject of Riba’ grew louder. Hence, the birth of RIFCON.net.
RIFCON seeks to foster progressive and constructive relationship with the world community. We aspire to generate awareness among the public on the ill-effects of Riba through continuous research and education whilst concurrently providing authorities, governments and policy makers with remedies and solutions that are just, practical and sustainable.
The VISION of RIFCON is create a God-centered highly prosperous, healthy, happy and peaceful world devoid of all social and environmental ills like poverty, crime, oppression, environmental destruction etc. The immediate MISSION of RIFCON is to fight the root cause of most socio-economic-politico problems of today, i.e RIBA
“Hence, while the Qur’anic condemnation of the concept and practice of riba’ is unequivocal and final, every successive Muslim generation is faced with the challenge of giving new dimensions and a fresh economic meaning to this term which, for want for a better word, may be rendered as ‘usury’ ”
