Husband's right over his wife's salary

Q: How much right does a man have over his wife's salary which she earns?

A: He does not have any right in her salary. It is the husband's duty to provide a home, food and clothing. If the husband is not doing this then he is failing in his basic duty.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
