he just wnts you to help he isn't pressuring you or anything I hope. Credit card is bad if you really cant pay it off if you don't have a job or fincical help, but its not about obeying or not its about you and what you feel about it

Riba (interest) is haram. Your Lord created you and your husband and He has decreed what is wrong and right: is it that hard to comprehend?

Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, "Trade is [just] like interest." But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah. But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.

(Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #275)
