Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

To take an interest loan from the bank to purchase a house is Haram. It is a cause of the anger of Allah.

As Muslims, we have complete belief that the success of this world and the Hereafter is in the obedience of Allah. Likewise, in the disobedience of Allah, there is misery and failure in this world and the Hereafter.

Therefore, a Muslim must stay away from taking an interest bearing loan.

A Halal alternative is to purchase a house through a reliable Islamic Bank such as UIF. Please see the following:

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
