Islamic Credit Card

Can I Keep My Conventional Credit Card for Emergency Uses?

Question:

Can I keep my conventional credit card for emergency or specific uses but pay all money owed within the stipulated deadline such that I don’t incur interests? What about the service fee that I remain paying for maintaining the card? If I understood correctly, paying service fee is fine as long as it is a flat charge, as this is a fee that is paid for the services rendered to me. But, some friends have said that it is not permissible. I do also have an Islamic card which is the main card I use. But the providing bank of the conventional card is much more recognised, efficient and most importantly reliable, hence my plan to keep it for specific or emergency uses especially since I travel quite a bit for work. Appreciate your advice.Read More »Can I Keep My Conventional Credit Card for Emergency Uses?
