    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1528/1499/H=1/1439)


    In the above mentioned case, it is not lawful to take or give house by taking or giving money rather it is unlawful dealing. According to Shariah, it is equal to interest to take a house as rihan (mortgage) by giving loan and receive benefit from the house.
