Do I have to share information about my finances with my husband?

My husband refuse to pay for bills until I show him my bank account. Islamically I explained to him that he is responsible to household and even if i was a millionnaire I don’ have to chip in unless I want to which I do. But my husband is not aware of how much I spend. Because he doesn’t pay directly the bills. I own my house and he lives with me. Now that I am pregnant I stopped working and. He refuses to pay anything until I show him my account. What islam says about this. Please help. Thanks.

Waslam

May Allah bless you.

You do not have to show him anything.

He is blameworthy for refusing to pay the necessary bills.

However, Islamic rulings aside, you both should talk and find a way out to this situation without any arguments.

And Allah knows best!

How do you know he is blameworthy without inquiry into other facts? Is this Islamic due process?

There is a difference between fatwa (legal opinion) and qadha (judgment).
Legal opinion is based on the questioner’s information. Judgement is based on the assessment of facts, witnesses and testimony.
Unfortunately, IFG forum is a fatwa forum related to financial matter and not a shariah court.
Hence, the answer stands correct with the information provided by the questioner i.e. a husband refusing to provide for the wife, is blameworthy as it is a duty he must fulfill.
If the husband wants to argue for his case and seek a judgement from a shariah judge, then he is free to do so.

And Allah knows best!
