Sunan Abi Dawood 1688
‘Ata said Abu Hurairah was asked Whether a woman could give sadaqah from the house (property) of her husband. He replied `No’. She can give it from her maintenance. The reward will be divided between them. It is not lawful for her to give sadaqah from her husband’s property without his permission.

Abu Dawud said This version weakens the version narrated by Hammam (bin Munabbih).
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ سَوَّارٍ الْمِصْرِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدَةُ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ، عَنْ عَطَاءٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، فِي الْمَرْأَةِ تَصَدَّقُ مِنْ بَيْتِ زَوْجِهَا قَالَ لاَ إِلاَّ مِنْ قُوتِهَا وَالأَجْرُ بَيْنَهُمَا وَلاَ يَحِلُّ لَهَا أَنْ تَصَدَّقَ مِنْ مَالِ زَوْجِهَا إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ هَذَا يُضَعِّفُ حَدِيثَ هَمَّامٍ ‏.‏
