My question is that my husband started to take a morgege,a home loun from a bank and the muslim allamah said that is riba and haram.He did'nt care about the case,but what is my hokom in this case??

Praise be to Allaah.

We put the following question to Shaykh Muhammad Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen:

Her husband has bought a house with haraam money. Can she refuse to live in it?

He replied, may Allaah preserve him:

“Praise be to Allaah. No, she cannot refuse to live in it, because she is living there rightfully. It is he who has acquired the house in a wrongful manner. But if he has seized another person's house by force, then she has the right to refuse to live in it.”

And Allaah knows best.
