Fatawa Answer

Question: Is it permissible to go to med school with money earned from my mom selling a house to bank?

ID: 1643

Name: Permissible and Impermissible


Instead of borrowing money? My mom doesn't want to use an Islamic bank, and isn't as practicing as I am, and she says she will do it so she can my medical school expenses so I don't have to pay for a student loan. Is this permissible?


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

If your mother wants to sell her house without any coercion, and to use that money for your education, she has the optionto do so, and there is no prohibition in Shariah regarding this.

The underlying concern of avoiding usurious debt, is commendable. But selling the house just for the sake of worldly education doesn’t appear to be quite sound. Therefore, it is suggested that you do “Istikharah” and then take action in this regard.
