Borrowing money and repaying back after a few years.


If i borrow money from someone in 2001 example 100 dollars
Then how much i pay back in 2019


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

You should pay the same amount but if you had taken the loan for a specific period of time and you intentionally did not pay him on time rather after 18 years you want to pay back then you must speak to him and compromise on which both of the parties agree and hence the loan would be paid back.

Although it is Mustahab for a debtor(person who takes loan), to add some amount over the amount taken and payback to the lender.
