Wahed invest stocks / shares

Salaam Mufti Faraz,

Are the shares / stocks used by wahed invest debt free?


Wa alaykum salaam,

Kindly email Wahed Invest directly.

The instruments Wahed use are mainstream Islamic funds/ sukuk funds or gold. The Islamic funds are governed by standard Islamic screening criteria so they will allow upto 33% debt. So in most Wahed portfolios there will definitely be some debt.

Assalamu aleykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh !
When say “dept” you lean dept with interest? If it is the case, how can we say that it is halal? And why 33% would be ok and not 34% for example.
Please kindly explain. Jakallahu khayran
