Usury

Q:

My father earns money by usury. i am very disappointing. but due to young age,. so i have to use this money. plz help me this money is appropriate.

A:
Assalamu alaykum 
 
For your Query I called the office of Sayyid Sistani, and this is what they had to say:
 
‘since you can’t help it, it’s ok for you to use out of that money’
 
It would be ideal if you could somehow make this reach to your father once again as a reminder that this way of earning money is haram. You could ask and older influence to help you on this, 
 
Best wishes,
