That in return of a Dirham of interest he loses his faith. And if he repents of his deeds in the world all his wrongfully earned wealth comes to an end and he becomes a destitute.”

The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) has also stated: “On the night of ascension (Meraj) I saw some people trying to stand up but did not succeed because of their huge bellies, I asked, O Jibraeel, who are these people?” Jibraeel replied, “They are those who have taken usury. Now they can only stand up like those who have been possessed by the Devils.” The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) continues, “Then I saw them herded upon the path of the followers of Firon. Seeing the extreme heat of the fire they exclaimed. O God! Then when will be Qiyamat?” (It is clear that the fire mentioned in the tradition is of the punishment of Barzakh).
