My husband and I have been living in the States for over 10 years. For a long time, we have wanted to buy a house but we didn't want to start our lives with a wrongful act (interest loans). But now, paying high rent and putting only some aside, it feels like only at deathbed we'll be able to own a home. We have asked different local imams about buying a house on interest and we got different views. So, I was wondering....
1) Is it considered haram to buy a house, even if we plan to live all our lives in the US?
2) If so, are there any companies that offer interest free loans for muslims in my situation?
3) What other options do I have?
Thank you very much!
