Is it lawful for a married woman to collect money from another man because what she gets from her husband is not enough to cater for her feeding not to talk about clothing and other necessities. I have made my husband understand several times that what he gives to me and the children does not sustain us but he would still say manage it because he has to pay rent at the end of year and do other things with money. Please what is the Islamic judgment?
It is not allowed to take money from another man even if your husband does not give you enough. You need to explain to your husband how much you need and what you need it for. If these are essentials then you are allowed to take from his wealth what is sufficient for you and the kids. If this is not possible then you need to approach a family relative who is well respected by your husband and let them know the issues.
May Allah make it easy for you.< Back to Questions
