    One of my closest friends is a doctor (got married just after qualifying). Her husband is a lawyer. She's now a stay at home mom. Her husband paid her entire loan off last year in one lump sum. After just one year of marriage.

    Alh not all men are the same.

    The only time we have to pay riba is IF we leave the country without paying the loan off first.
    Where is over here?

    In uk they charge interest based on inflation, student loans company and loan statements explicitly show Riba/interest

    This is what the scholars over at islamqa.com think: http://islamqa.info/en/128996

    But this isn't just for sisters, it's for brothers too it seems.

    Has anyone checked this with a scholar/imaam?

    Doesn't make any sense to me.

    1. If the loan doesn't have to be paid off - Where is the sin in not paying it?

    2. If you don't pay it, you're not paying actual interest - If you're not [paying] interest, you're not sinning right?

    3. If you don't pay it, just a number is increasing on a computer somewhere - That is not [paying interest], but is just a number increasing as no [paying] is being done.

    4. If you do pay it, you're paying interest by choice, as you're not being forced to pay the interest - Isn't that a sin? i.e to voluntarily pay interest without being forced to pay it?

    So if your wife doesn't work, isn't it a sin to pay interest by "choice"? As you don't have to pay off the loan. If your wife doesn't work, and you want to pay off the loan, are you not paying interest by choice for a loan that doesn't need to be paid off?

    I'm no scholar, but it doesn't make sense to me to pay interest by choice for a loan you do not need to repay. However, I think this topic needs to be clarified by a scholar as my logic could be wrong, even though it seems accurate to me, I have no problem accepting that I am wrong as soon as I see the proof from at least a reputable scholar who proves his view from quran/sunnah.

    I am told that apparently some brothers and sisters are ok with it because it's only for 25/35 years ...

    Nauzubillah

    Rasulullah :saw: said "Riba has seventy-three doors. The least one (in sin) is as that of a man who sleeps with his mother. And worst form of Riba is harming the honor of a Muslim man."

    (Al-Hakim, graded Sahih)

    How does a Muslim sleep knowing this?

    Nauzubillah min zaliq

    :jkk:

    I don't want to go too in depth but seriously? What kind of person wouldn't want someone to go to college just because of fitna? there's fitna everywhere. the obvious solution is to get married young, and try to work it out while studying. It'll be one more reason to persuade you not to go to those kind of "parties" and to actually look down when seeing the opposite gender because you have someone of your own to look up to. But to answer this question to the OP on this thread. Yes I would help her go to college, and if we were married while we were both in college, things will be rough financially, but if we got married for all the right reasons maybe Allah (swt) will bestow some mercy and cut us a break from time to time. But why wouldn't you want your wife to be educated?

    Yeah, I don't want to go on about inequality, but it's just a bit odd to say it's wrong for sisters and okay for brothers? There's no easy way to put it, but this is modern day and a lot of things are mixed so you can't expect to go home and hide yourself from these sort of things. I mean, many of us are living in a "white man's world" (sorry for saying) but we can't expect everything to go our ways. You should go out and fulfill your deen and try your best to ignore the haraam whether brother or sister.
