Q:

If someone takes his father’s money for help of a needy ,is this a theft ,what is it’s accustion according to Islam now what should we do if needy needs more money should he take more money ?

A:

Alaykum salaam

Thank you for your question. You cannot use your fathers money for something he would not give his permission for (even if that is charity). If you have spend it before asking you should inform him and ask if he is satisfied with the way you spent it. Otherwise you have to replace the money you took without his permission.

May you always be successful
