An Indonesian Islamic organization has issued a new fatwa against the use of cryptocurrencies
Council Tarjih and Central Executive Council Muhammadiyah, one of the largest Islamic NGOs in Indonesia, have issued a new fatwa against the use of cryptocurrencies, which they consider haram or illegal for Muslims.
Fatva, a decision under Islamic law, was issued on Tuesday and points to two major problems with cryptocurrencies that make them illegal as an investment tool and a medium of exchange under Islamic law:
- The speculative nature of cryptocurrencies makes them imperfect as an investment tool. We believe that cryptocurrencies contain “gharar” (ambiguity), which means that they are not covered by anything like gold, which makes them illegal under Islamic law.
- Cryptocurrencies do not meet the standards of Islamic barter or exchange law, which require that they be legal tender and be accepted by both parties.
