  1. Please clarify if I understood rightly. A Muslim who deals in riba i.e. house or business or any other dealings in Mortgage should not be allowed to become a member or hold any position in running the affairs of that Masjid or Islamic Organisation. What about a professional i.e. Accountant, Real Estate agent or a person who works in an Institution which deals in Interest directly or indirectly? Thank you.

    I am not in a position to give you FATWA however from my understanding it applies to all. The source is the Hadith;
    "Jabir (R.A) said that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) cursed the accepter of interest and its payer, and one who records it, and the two witnesses, and he said: They are all equal. [Sahih Muslim 1598, The Book of Musaqah (22), Chapter: Cursing the one who consumes Riba and the one who pays it (19)]."
