Oh rtfm...he is not updated
unfortunately non islamic banks offering islamic products are actually profiting very well and thats because they get the money from the customers, lend with interests to another customers (non muslims) and keeping all the profit for themselves, so muslim customers are actually more profitable than the non muslims
still there are general benefits Or u can go straight to a islamic bank rather than an ordinary one

What do you mean, "don't rely on" interest rates? How do you think banks stay in business? How do you think they get the money that they loan out to their borrowers? They get that money from the interest they charge other people who have borrowed from them.
I'd be interested to hear how you think a "non-usury" bank would manage to remain open, once they'd given away all the supply of cash they initially had on hand.
