I have a good reasonable job here. Lots of people are migrating from UAE to Canada, Australia etc due to high cost of living here, high inflation rate, no good higher education for children, high medical and accomodation cost etc. Here in UAE, we can not sponsor childern after 17 years of age, hence we need to send them back to home country…in this case we will have family break, half living in UAE and half in home country etc. Now coming to my Question… 1) I have also received my immigration status for Canada. My children are under 5 years age at the moment. Now is it feasible to migrate bcos of good education for children and other material benefits. Migration to non-muslim country is feasible as per Sharia? 2) another option people are using these days is that they are leaving their families alone (wife kids) in canada and after 3 years once they get the citizenship/passport they come back…is it feasible as per Sharia? Please advise with reference to Quran and Ahadees asap.

Answer

(Fatwa: 1826/1448=H/1429)

 

If there is no fear that your beliefs and good deeds as well as of your family’s will be affected by going to Canada, then it is correct to opt for the first case. It is undesirable (makrooh) to leave your family behind alone in another country for so long. And, if it is feared to get indulged in sins, then it is unlawful and haram.
