University Debt and Halal Makeup

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by:  Maulana Tahsin Alam​


I have a question regarding a debt I took for university. Under the terms and conditions of the loan I should pay back if I am earning a certain amount mentioned which I am but in technical terms, my full wage is not shown as I get a hand in cash. Also, we have a family business so I am not sure if I am liable to pay the entire debt off as I am not working in the family business and it’s clearly not related me. Can you please advise the situation above as I am really confused? Even if I was to pay off the debt from my dad’s money I would still owe him later on.

Also, moving out of the topic. I have another question. Are women allowed to put ‘halal’ makeup in sense of no use of animal and its cruelty-free? Makeup only contains natural ingredients.

You will have to see the details of the repayment of the loan; whether or not if they are referring to your taxable income or not, in order to determine the correct amount you are liable to pay back.

Yes, this type of makeup is permissible.
