(Fatwa: 599/465/SN=5/1439)

According to Shariah, it is not lawful to pay interest money in paying the charges of internet banking and ATM. Bank levies these charges in return of its services which it provides to its customers. It is not a non-Shariah tax that may make it lawful to give interest money in it.
