He took out a loan with interest for his friend, then he repented. What should he do?

Question

He took out a loan with interest in his name for his friend, as a way of helping his friend – as he thought. Now he has repented, so does he have to transfer the debt to his friend’s name?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who replied as follows:

 If it is possible, then he should do that, lest he be considered to approve of this, and lest he continue to help his friend deal with ribaa. And Allaah knows best.
