Ruling on taking money from one whose wealth is a mixture of Halaal and Haraam

26-2-2023 | IslamWeb


Assalamu alaykum warahmatulLahi wabarakatuhu. I have read your fatawas on this topic, but have more questions. I'm a student and my father and mother pay may education, but their money mixed, haraam with halal. Can i continiue to study? What about extra lessons can i take extra lessons by asking money from parents? Can i ask them for some my needs beyond essential?


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.

As long as your parents' money is not purely Haram, but rather mixed - as you have mentioned - then the most correct view is that it is permissible to deal with the owner of mixed money, with the dislikeability that could be more or less depending on the amount of the unlawful (Haram) money. This dislikeability is negated with the need to those expenses, and accordingly it is permissible for you to take the tuition fees from your parents, and likewise expenses for additional lessons, and asking them for money to buy some of your needs, even if they are not necessary.

Allah knows best.
