Zero-Interest Loan

A loan on which interest does not accumulate. Rather, the borrower must only repay the principal. For example, one may borrow $5,000 and pay the lender $5,000 over a period of two years, at which point the debt is considered repaid. Zero-interest loans are the only loans permitted in Islamic finance. They are also extended to persons, companies and countries in desperate need of aid. See also: Zero-coupon bond.
