Taking out a student loan

Q: I am trying my best not to apply for a student loan but keeping up with my payments has become so difficult and it has come to a point where sometimes we don’t have food to eat because a big chunk is going out for university payments. I need to finish my degree for my kids future.

Can I take out a student loan involving interest but pay it back ASAP? Please advice as our situation is taking a toll on my health.

A: Interest is a curse. When the curse is going to come onto your life then how can you ever do such a thing.

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