Charity and DebtCharity and Debt
Nazim asked 5 years ago

Assalaamualaikum,
I am in approx £5000 worth of debt from my overdraft of which I get charged interest on from the bank, my earnings from work don’t clear my debt and so im still in it each month, im trying to reduce my spendings so i can pay some of it off each month, but i am struggling with it.
Question is I feel like I need and want to give charity still, am i islamically allowed to use my overdraft even though i pay interest on it to help the needy or give in charity to masjids etc…
Also do you know of any tips or duas to help overcome debt..
JazakAllah khair for taking your time out to read my message.
