Using someones money kept as amanat.


If someone lends you money and says keep it for me I’ll get it back when I need it then if you need some money you take that money the other person lent you but then you after a time put it back is that counted as khayanat?


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

Any usage of property or money given as an Amanat is not allowed without the permission of the owner or the possessor.

If the person has given you the permission to use it if required and later put it back then it is considered correct otherwise in the mentioned case, you must inform and get his permission.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
