Using neighbours’ wifi – internet without permission

Home / Q&A / Using neighbours’ wifi – internet without permission


A husband uses his neighbor’s Wi-Fi without asking permission. His wife advised him that it’s wrong and asked him to provide a halal source. The husband refused so his wife didn’t use this Wi-Fi as she doesn’t want to get into haram. Now she wants to home-school her child and she is in a great need of using internet to get learning resources. Is she allowed to use this Wi-Fi for homeschooling only? May Allah reward you with goodness.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Being in need for internet does not make it allowed. It is still Haram to use the neighbor’s wifi without their permission.
