A person earned big amount of money out of
Riba buisneess. can he give charity and to the
mosque fund out of that money? If he want
to start a halal buisness out of that haram
money can he do that? What is the position
of new earned halaal money he earned from
haram money? Wassalam.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

The money that is obtained from Riba
(interest and/or usury) is ill-gotten money
and it should not be given in charity because
Allah is pure and He only accepts that which
is pure. Rather, one should get rid of this
money by spending it on the general interest
of Muslims. Therefore, that man may give
this money to the mosque fund which you
mentioned in the question so that it can be
spent for the benefit of the mosque or that it
will be spent on the poor and destitute
It is not permissible for whoever gained ill-
gotten money to spend it on himself or to
invest it even in a lawful business.

As regards the ruling of lawful money that
one earns from ill-gotten money (taken
unjustly from someone else), then the
preponderant opinion of the scholars
is that he deserves half of the profit and he
should give the other half to the owner of
the money which is taken from him unjustly.
Moreover, if he gained this ill-gotten money
from Riba or else and then he invested it and
made profits from it, then it is an obligation
on him to spend half of this profit along with
the capital money on the general interests of
the Muslims, like building hospitals, schools
and on other fields where ill-gotten money
should be spent.

Allah Knows best.
