  3. Assalamualaikum,
    My father saved money at Deposit Premium Scheme (DPS) in bank which includes Usury or Riba. He also took home loan from bank for which he had to give the bank interest. By those money he built a house and give it at rent so that by his saving he can lead his life in future easily. I am a student and I don’t earn money till now. In Islam Riba / Usury is haram. As we are muslim. Is it jahez to use the money which we get from the house rent? If not what we should do about the house?
    Thank you.
