Definition of "Al-‘ariyah"

Lit: Borrowed. Tech: To allow another person receive benefit from one’s property without any consideration. It is one of the customs of the Muslim society. People may borrow small articles of household goods from neighbours and relatives. The difference between ‘ariyah and qard is that in the former case, the thing borrowed (which is always other than money) is to be returned in its original form, whereas in case of qard, the loan can be, and is usually, returned in money of equivalent value.
