Q: My husband has some mustabah money which he earned from his job. My question is can I use that money as a loan from my husband without him knowing? I will give him back. Actually I am need of money but I cannot ask my husband because he is a very calculative man and I am sure he will never give me.
A: If the money is required for household expenses then you can take it without his permission.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
