Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Interest is haram. If the person who borrowed you the money is a Muslim, you should discuss the issue with him and explain him not to take the interest. You too are equally sinful as you agreed to pay interest. Paying interest is a big curse. You should try to clear the loan as soon as possible. If you have excess money, use that to pay out the loan instead of going for Hajj.

And Allah knows best
