Assalamoalaikum.God will reward you for doing this great service to muslims.Both my husband and i work and our salaries go to a joint account.I do not have access to the account and cannot spend without my husband’s permission and knowledge.I need to know that can I spend some amount according to my own will from my salary? Do i need to have his permission to spend the money that I earn? You might tell me that I should not be workng but please answer my question in the light of current circumstances.
According to the Shari’ah, every individual’s wealth is sanctified. That
includes complete control over one’s wealth. An adult female may use her
wealth as she wish to within the parameters of Shari’ah.
She may spend upon herself as well as give charity. The husband has no right
over the wife’s wealth. If he uses his position as a husband to dominate his
wife and her wealth, he will be sinful.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
