Prohibition of Interest in the Context of Böhm-Bawerk’s Time Preference Theory of Interest

This paper discusses the theory of interest espoused by Böhm-Bawerk. The author reviews the works of some Muslim economists who think that since time preference is valid in Islam, so is time value of money. In Islamic finance literature, there is largely a consensus that time value of money is not valid, but the time value of commodity is acceptable.
