Praying in a masjid which is built with forbidden money
Question:

a) What is the ruling upon the prayer in a masjid (mosque) which was built seeking the face of Allaah the Exalted, but the money used in its construction was mixed with ribaa (usury) money? b) What is the ruling upon the prayer in a masjid built with donations and some of that was stolen wealth?
Answer:

The prayer in both of these two is permissible and the sin of the one dealing in usury and of the thief is upon that person himself.

And with Allaah is the tawfeeq. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his Companions.
