              AsSalaamu Alaikum

              Generally, a debt is a debt and In Shaa Allah i would aid anyone who is under my guardianship with their debt. May Allah make it easy and be pleased with us.

              However, I would have serious questions for the potential interms of her thoughts on riba and motivations for taking this avenue of finance.

              The weight of Allah's words are heavy and we affirm that He alone is our provider.

                  Yes I would InshaAllah.

                  After marriage, the wife doesn't need to worry about finances.

                  May Allah swt grant us rizq in abundance.

                    Do you know of the ruling on a husband paying off his wife's riba based loan? Is that permissible?

                      This is a ruling which has been discussed by the scholars in UK and many of them agreed that you can take it out whether it qualifys as ribaa' or not, I don't want to go into detail on this mas'alaha otherwise people will just jump the ribaa' gun. I personally do not believe many of the people here are not mature enough to discuss khilaafaat especially rulings in the west.

                        Riba or no riba - a debt is a debt and not something to be taken lightly. Don't see why a husband should inherit a debt that isn't his especially if he, himself, avoided going into debt.

                        My greatest fear is dying whilst I owe a debt to someone. I don't see why anyone should put that kind of pressure on their spouse.
                        And when it is said to them, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers." (11) Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not. (12) - Surat al-Baqarah

                            You're right akhi MashaAllah. I wouldn't make my eife work anyway unless she really wants to.

                            The problem is young brothers when they hear student loan, they think "ribaa!" which is admirable (may Allah bless them) but we need to look at what scholars have said regarding this issue especially in the west. They've made a ruling with an agreement of scholars all over the UK through thorough research and discussion taking into account all the factors and circumstances then finly came with a verdict. They do not pass on rulings for the sake of appeasing the muslims or due to their desires, they're actually very sincere and are trying to help the muims in the UK.

                              Excuse me brother but i disagree

                              O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.
                              Qur'an 49:12

                              In my opinion he should immediately assume the best, islamic loan for example or make up an excuse for her.
                              يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ وَٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

                              O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous

                              Surah Al Baqarah ayah 21

                                :jkk:I completely agree with you that ribaa' is from the major sins and it has a huge gravity in the sight of Allah swt but like I said I was expecting people to come up with verses and ahadeeth condeming ribaa which is a great sing because the adherence you have for the deen.

                                However, with the situation of the westwest, the muslims have been pushed on to the wall already and they need to educate themselves in order to keep the deen within the society in the UK. Also because education is a basic right for all the citizens of the UK and the government is imposing the loan on the students therefore they won't be accountable for the ribaa'. The scholars have put this ruling in the necessities department of fataawa.

                                I'm not saying just take the loan without trying any other means first, exhaust all other means then the resort is the loan. (From credible scholars, not me)
