Concise answer

We submitted your question to the office of Ayatollah Khamenei and received the following response:

It is permissible to withdraw money from an account that actually has money in it. However, an amount given to you through means of credit – without having the base sum present in the account – is permissible if it is given as a loan. In which case, the loan is considered permissible, but the interest (if any) is considered riba and thus impermissible.
