As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
Mufti Muneer Akhoon (HA) of _New York_ has given a response that "interest based mortgage" is permissible and quoted Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA).
Shaykul-Islam Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) directly responds to the issue and requests that his clarification should be spread as much as possible in US & Canada.
Here is the original clip of Mufti Muneer Akhoon (HA) and then the response of Shaykul-Islam Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA).
