Giving money in charity on the assumption that it is interest

Q: From the information I had available to me, I thought a sum of money was haraam interest. I gave this money to the poor without the intention of reward. I was later informed by the bank that in fact no interest was accruing in my account. I therefore gave out halaal money without the intention of reward. Will Allah Ta’ala still reward me despite the intention made at that time?


A: Yes

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
