I don't know  we did right or wrong.kindly guid us.

الجواب وبالله التوفيق      

Taking and giving interest both are Haramin Islam. You took loan from the Bank on interest which is not correct. This action is not correct. With repentance and seeking forgiveness, have yourself get rid of this dealing in interest.

قال تعٰالی: احل اللہ البیع و حرم الربوٰا

 (القراٰن، سورہ   البقرہ آیت 275)

Nabi S.A.W. has issued curse on the person taking or giving interest.

عن عبد الرحمن بن عبداللہ بن مسعود عن ابیہ قال لعن رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ و سلم اٰکل الربوٰا  و مُؤکلہ و شاھدہ و کاتبہ۔   

 (ابو داؤد باب فی اکل الربٰوا و مُؤکلہ حدیث 3333 بذل المجہودشرح ابو داؤد  )

واللہاعلم  بالصواب
