Seeing to the needs of the home

Q: My question is my husband gives me money every month only after I have given him all the receipts and given him a full monthly expenses list of everything I bought for the month. Which I say is wrong because you are only giving money to feed your four children and us. Even if he buys something or gets something for 50p he will ask me to give it back to him what he gave me. Alhamdullilah he is a heating engineer and earns good money. Some months he wont give money till I give him a full monthly rundown. Please tell me in Islam is what he is doing right?


A: The correct thing for the husband is that he makes all the needs of the home available. For him to compel you to get all the necessities is not right.

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