Using one’s husbands money to give sadaqah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am a woman with no income of my own. I do not receive a personal allowance from my husband for myself. He does give me a monthly allowance which is for household expenses. It really bothers me that he constantly sends money for building of wells and musjids for sadaqaa jaariyah for himself. Can I use a portion of this household money to send in my name for my own sadaqah?


A: No, you cannot use his money without his permission.

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