I wanted to know about the home financing through Islamic banking system. i am planning to buy a house through Guidance Residential company and completed their application. There contract seems like a conventional banking system contract. i am in doubt and it feels like it is based on interest as well. I have aked to many people about it and they said, there is no other option in USA to buy house other than interest based loan. All Islamic financial institution in USA have interest based contract in reality.
Please guide me, I am very confused about it. Which company or Islamic back will you recommend me to buy a house in USA which can offer interest free contract. If there is none, should I keep renting a house for whole life ?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
