Q: My wife gave birth to a baby girl a month ago. People have been giving gifts and others have been giving money. To whom does the money belong and what do we do with it?
A: Generally on the occasion when a child is born, money, gifts, etc are given for the child unless stated otherwise.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
