بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

Riba (interest) is Haram and sinful. One must repent to Allah, as Allah is Most forgiving and Ever Merciful. Also, the debt must be completed as well.

(ان من شرط التوبة أن ترد الظلامة الى أصحابها فان كان ذالك فى المال وجب أداؤه عيناأودينا مادام مقدوراعليه (القواعد للزركشي ج2 ص245 بيروت

And Allah knows best
