Taking the money owed to one by one’s father from his money

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My dad owes me some money, however he thinks that whatever money I give him, he doesn’t have to pay me back. However I am the one that looks after his money fully. He keeps his savings with me also. Would it be permissible for me to take my money without telling him, he will not realise that I have taken my money as it is a very little amount. If I ask for my money back he may get upset and offended.


A: Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
