Q 1: Is
an accountant for a foreign bank included in
"Allah curses the devourer (taker) of Riba (usury/interest), its payer, its two witnesses, and its scribe?"
Foreign bank dealings are interest-based transactions with borrowers, depositors, etc. Persons who work as accountants in such banks must handle the accounts of usurious dealings and write financial agreements between the two parties. Thus, a creditor is distinguished from the debtor. Therefore, accountants and their likes are included in the above mentioned Hadith as it applies to foreign banks and other usurious banks.
