I understand that Sunni's consider all forms of Riba to be haraam, including riba based financing such as mortgages.
I also understand that Shia based scholars consider riba to be haraam, but apparently riba based financing such as mortgages are fine based on your intention.
For example, if you need 500,000 in financing, but after calculating the riba you know that you will end up paying 1,000,000. If you make the intention of taking out a riba free mortgage of 1,000,000, it's all good?
My question is, what is the Sunni view on such intentions?
Authentic Sunni sources would be preferred. Or at least the views and/or a fatwa from a reputable sunni scholar.
