Teaching English in an Islamic classroom

Q: I am a student and in our village teachers were teaching students in the building which was unsafe and village committee couldn't find any building where students could read and there was an Islamic darasgarh on the village side where no one was reading and the village committee took them to that very darsgah. They have to stay there for 2 to 3 months till their premises will complete and they actually paid rent and is just timely settlement but after 8 days some persons came and told them it is not permissible to teach English education in an Islamic darsgah. It is a sin. Please explain to me is it a sin or not.

A: If this building was founded for deeni reasons then let it be exclusive for teaching deen.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
