Praise be to Allah.

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:

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.
