Riba al-Quran

In Islamic law, interest charged on money lent. It is called riba al-Quran (as opposed to simply riba, which has much the same meaning in everyday use) because it is explicitly forbidden in the Quran. This contrasts with riba al-sunnah, which refers to subtler forms of interest prohibited in traditions surrounding the Quran, but not in the Quran itself.
