Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Firstly, overburdening one’s father with what is beyond his ability contradicts the enjoined politeness towards the father. In fact, such act is denounced even if done with any other person, not to mention one’s own father!

The fact that he bought you this mobile because you insisted on it, does not impede availing yourself of it. It is most likely that he had willingly bought it for you. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with keeping and using the mobile, especially if you need it for your study.

However, you should beware of repeating such (sinful) acts with your father in the future.

Allah knows best.
