Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

Receiving money from the bank shares etc, is Riba (usury) a Haram form of income.

Therefore, one should dispose of any type of Haram funds like bank shares etc.

The Haram income should be given into the ownership of deserving poor Muslim recipients without any intention of reward. Riba money will thus be disposed of without any intention of gaining reward, to those needy Muslims who are eligible to receive Zakat.
