Writing Interest on Invoices

I’m reading a book 40 HADEETHS and I came across this Hadeeth that says: “The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) cursed a taker of interest, a writer of interest and a place where the interest is charged…” In the footnote is written: “Thus it is prohibited for a Muslim to work in a bank”. I work in a finance department and one of the things I work with is writing interest on invoices that are overdue. So I was wondering what is the ruling in my case?


Answer.
It is not permissible for a Muslim to even witness a riba (interest) transaction or even write a riba invoice. If you cannot avoid or escape writing invoices of interest at your current work, then it is not permissible to continue with this employment. It is obligatory upon you to seek alternative income in the meantime.
