As salaamu alaikum, I have a few questions about riba. We have a situation in our community where a brother here went to jail and left a car with a loan attached to it. There is currently $250 left on it to pay off, but it accrues interest. He cannot pay it off because he is jail. So we were wondering if it would it be a sin or a blessing to pay it off for him. And if someone pays it off can they drive the car, or will the car be haram all together?
These and other questions in this section requiring fatwa have been posted here in case anyone has qualified answers from the people of knowledge regarding these specific matters. They have not been posted to invite opinions. So please reply to provide proper information only if you know you can.
