Q: My father has passed away and since I have no brother, the only source of income for my mother is the monthly payment that comes against the amount deposited in the saving scheme. As it is an interest based scheme, is it permissible for her to use such earnings for all her needs? She is over sixty.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
