Disposing of interest money

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I asked the bank to change my account from profit and loss to current account and stop sending profit to me. They told me that they cannot and told me to make a new account, which I cannot do due some reasons. It is okay if I give the interest money to poor people?

A: Yes. This money is called interest.

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