Praying in a mosque built with riba based loan


A new Islamic Center in my communinity is being built. The Muslims here bought the property by taking a huge loan with interest. The masjid was built involving interest. Is it haram for Muslim students to pray and conduct activities in this mosque or go to only the other masjids in the area?


Praise be to Allah.

It is permissible to pray in this mosque; the people who took out the loan based on interest must repent to Allah.

And Allah is the source of strength.
