Muslim Decides Islam Forbids Him From Paying $32,000 In Student Loan Interest
by Eric Owens
Steve Rhode, the Get Out of Debt Guy, has advised a Muslim man seeking financial advice not to try to use Islam as a crutch to get out of paying half of what is now a $64,000 student loan debt.
"Dear Steve," the Seattle, Wash. man going by the name Amir wrote to Rhode in a missive published this week, "I had two citi-student loans and at some point in time within the last 5 years they went to Navient."
Amir explained that he had unsuccessfully asked the loan servicing company to lower his payoff amount to $32,000, even though the actual amount he owes is $64,000 "because of deferment and interest."
