Praying in a mosque built with riba based loan

Question

A new Islamic Center in my communinity is being built. The Muslims here bought the property by taking a huge loan with interest. The masjid was built involving interest. Is it haram for Muslim students to pray and conduct activities in this mosque or go to only the other masjids in the area?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

It is permissible to pray in this mosque; the people who took out the loan based on interest must repent to Allaah. And Allaah is the source of strength.
