Taking out a mortgage loan

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I would like to have complete fatwa on getting mortgage for personal home. Especially if your wife is more or less like a new Muslim and don’t understand Islam very well. Can you go for a mortgage option or not?


A: This is impermissible and it involves interest.

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