Is taking a bank loan for my son's education lawful?

Asalam alaykom
My question is about taking a bank loan in order to enroll my son in a college, and are there specifications for the loan?
I would also like to ask about the use of credit cards (such as MasterCard) what are the Islamic limits in using them?
Thanks

Answer


- It is permissible to use credit cards provided one pays before subjecting himself to the interests due on late payment.
It is permissible to take a loan for education based on mutual agreement between you and the bank.

- As for taking a personal loan, it is permissible based on necessity.
