Answer

(Fatwa: 1659/L=354/TL=1430)

 

Using credit card for purchase and other things is allowable when there is amount available in the account of the card holder; so that the bank can receive its debts. If there is no amount in the account, then also using credit card will be permissible with the condition that issued bills are paid within the required period so that no interest is levied; since paying interest is haram.
