My Question is regarding finance. It's a long story and it goes as follows. I live in US with my family. I worked part time in a local grocery store a while ago. Almost two years back, I used to wear glasses then I was suggested by one of my friends to have a lasik eye surgery so I wouldn't need glasses. I had my surgery and payment was $3500 which I financed for 2 years. Since I was working well, I bought a hearing aid for my father for one ear only for $1500. At that time, I was able to pay off for both my eyes surgery and my dad's hearing aid. Then about 6 months ago, I lost my job and started paying the minimum money which I had to borrowed from my brothers and college money savings. Then about 3 months ago, I found another job which was much better in wages than the previous one. With that job, I would've been able to pay off all that amount I owed before the promotions end so I wouldn't be charged for the interest(riba). Because for such good job, I bought furniture for my mother's room, again financing the amount of $1500. I bought it because I could've afford the furniture and pay off everything before the promotion end with that current job. Unfortunately, I lost that job as well right next day, the day I purchased the furniture. Now, here is the question I want to ask. I never intended to pay riba for any of the these things I financed. If I hadn't lost my job, I would have been able to pay off all that money within the promotion time. Now I am jobless for past few months and its conformed that I would not be able to pay off all the amount I owe before the promotion expires. I would surely be charged the amount of Interest which I had never intended. Would I be still be sinful because of the Riba I would pay even though I never had intentions of paying interest. I know its a major sin and it really upsets me whenever I think about the paying interest and punishment in hereafter. Would I be punished for paying the interest.
