Muslim Home Buyers Forbidden by Their Religion to Pay Interest Turn to Christian Charity

“The way Habitat deals fits exactly to our requirements,” said Nurhussien, who bought a home earlier this year from the northern Virginia chapter of the group. “It’s not free. It is no interest. It’s good for me and whoever has the same belief.”

In northern Virginia, a majority of 12 families who bought condominiums at the local Habitat’s latest development, including Nurhussien, are Muslim. In Nashville, local Habitat executive director Chris McCarthy said the city’s large population of Muslim Kurdish immigrants has embraced the nonprofit. Over 10 percent of the group’s mortgage holders are Kurdish.
