Spouses looking in one another's wallet or purse

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Do I have permission to look in my husband's wallet? Does he have permission to look in my purse.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen, who replied as follows:

Does the other partner agree to that? If he or she agrees to it, then there is nothing wrong with it, but if he or she does not agree to it, then it is not permissible.

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
