- Giving sadaqah to widow with ‘aqeeqah money
- 1.I have a question regarding sadaqah.There is a hadith which says the best sadaqah is money spent on the members of household.In this context,my question is that I give some money on monthly basis from my income as sadaqah.However some of my sister/brother are not financially well off and at times need help. Alhamdulillah Allah has granted me the highest income in my household.So rather than taking out that money as sadaqah and giving it to unknown people is it ok If I can spend the same money on my brother/sister keeping in mind the above mentioned hadith.Everyone is married in our home. 2.Is there some minimum stipulated amount of money that should be taken out as sadaqah or it could be any amount? My sister insists me on giving 2.5% of my salary as sadaqah and she says,she has seen a lot of benefits by giving atleast that amount in sadaqah (she tells her husband).What should i do in this regard.Should i spend this money on my household members Jazakallah Khairan

- Would a father be sinful for giving some of his children more money than others – for example financing the trip of one child to go abroad but not giving any money to the other child? Another situation might be the father giving one child thousands of pounds for their studies and giving nothing to the other child. Or does Shari’ah allow a father to give one of his children more money than others (whilst the father is still well and alive)?
