Can I take a Loan from a bank if I intent to pay the interest using the interest that the same bank gives me on my account?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Dear Mufti; I have read that you gave fatwah that the interest on a bank account could be used to offset the interest on a loan from the same bank; my question: If this is my intent can I take a loan from the bank ? Baraka Lahou Bikom

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu

The wisdom behind the referred Fatwa is to merely dispose of the interest in
the very avenue it was obtained from. It certainly does not imply that one
can deliberately obtain an interest bearing loan.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
