Can we use interest received on PPF A/c to pay personal loan interest?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I have personal loan and loan against credit card. I received interests on PPF A/c . My question is that received interest can be used to pay personal loan interest.
At time of zakah calculation loan amount will be deducted from my saving or not?
Please tell some dua or surah or wazifahs to pay this loan as soon as possible. Now onward I promised to surrender my all credit card.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 397/397/M=05/1437)

It is not right to pay the interest of loan by the interest money which you have received in your PPF account. There is no zakah on interest money. Hence you should calculate your zakah after deducting the interest amount received in your saving account. You should pay the loan off as soon as possible. Also keep on doing taubah and istighfar. Also recite the following dua for the repayment of loan in the morning and evening.
اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ، وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ
