Q: I would like to know if there is any guidelines in the shari’ah on how one should spend their money/salary. Someone told me that it was the advice of one of the ulama that your income/salary should be divided into 3 parts:
- Charity ie discharging zakaat, qurbani and spending on ones parents etc
- For your living essentials and spending.
What is muftis opinion on the above? Also I would like to know if a person can stop doing the above with no valid reason?
A: These are optional things.
