Usury in The Study of Maudhui Interpretation
Main Article Content
he systemic practise of usury has led to the separation of the monetary sector from the real sector, resulting in a prolonged economic downturn. This has actually been warned in the Qur'an. This study aims to examine the verse of usury in a maudhui interpretation. The method used in writing is descriptive qualitative. It is called descriptive because this research intends to explore and describe the interpretation of the thematic verse of usury. It is called qualitative because the data encountered are in the form of verbal statements. This research is included in Library Research because the place and source of the data are literature, books and works of interpretation. The result of this study is that all types of usury are forbidden based on the texts of the Qur'an. The Qur'an highlights the practice of usury not only in a micro context but also in a macro context which has been systemic and has had a wide impact and endangers the economy in general. Therefore, the verses that talk about usury did not come down all at once but gradually through four stages. In the first stage, the verse of usury is categorized as makkiyah, while in the second to fourth stages, it is categorized as madaniyah. This indicates that the elimination of systemic usury cannot be done all at once but requires planned stages and strategies.
