Let's all pause for a moment, and critically analyse the OP's intentions.
There is no evidence that he is pushing for Sharia law upon communities. He only showed one aspect of such laws laid down centuries ago, even times before Islam.
There is a purpose of his OP, and it is to show how it may perhaps solve our current banking woes ruled by banksters.
The secondary purpose, unfortunately reveals how a number of posters here will totally disregard an idea for discussion that may be possible for adoption for the sake of common good, just because it came from a 'hated side'.
It only shows and proves how retarded a mankind had regressed, just because a good idea from another community is tossed aside simply because out of hatred for their beliefs.
What have we done but supporting those whose intentions were to keep us all divided by blind and ignorant hatred and superiority?
We must wake up now, if not for the sake of ourselves, do think of the next generations to come, and spare them the misery and sufferings we had to endure today - brother killing brother without even knowing the TRUE reasons.....

But why not bring up the idea of the good parts about the banking ideas...and leave out the religious ties to the idea?
Its like some people cant take a idea and find truth or good in it and not call it their own truth then.
We can take good things from other places, and make it our own. Just because its a part of a religious law doesnt mean that we cant have the same banking system outside the the religious law.
I find truth in the saying...love your enemies....love is not jealous....and the kingdom is within. But do I have to call these things 'christian truths'? Can I not come forth to others and say....'look, I find the things here to be wise advice and I think the world would be a better place if we all can bring these 3 things into our lives'? Am I labeled a 'religion' due to what I found to be wise things...due to that those things came from a book that a religion uses?
Why not make a thread a say here is the basics for a banking system I think would work and would like to be a part of? Why include the religion with it? Especially...if your going to cherry pick on part of the law and not discuss the others...why then even call it the 'sharia law' at all?
Rather than to presumed that it was experiences that we evolved from, why be hesitant to look into historical records that may provide answers to our evolution? While the argument persist that it could have been man who wrote such records and interpreted or misinterpreted them, but still it does not deny EVENTS of profound natures had taken place in our history of civilisation. Why such fears to confront and seek the truth of such events?
At times, they get a little out of control and some form of regulation is put into effect until the times arises when the new system is again worked and need further modification.

# THE CHRISTIANS & THE JEWS
If thou lend money to any of My people, even to the poor with thee, thou shalt not be to him as a creditor; neither shall ye lay upon him interest. (Exodus, 22:25)
Deuteronomy 23:19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:

Typically, scholars point to Mosaic Law as the 'Law' that the Sermon on the Mound refers to teaching and following, which would be the Ten Commandments, not the laws created by the Levites et al.
