Q: I have a friend who is in financial trouble, he has to repay a huge amount of a loan. I know one person who has won some money in a bet, he wants to use the bet amount to help someone in need and does not want to use it for himself.
Is it permissible to use the bet amount to help someone in need without any intention of sawaab?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
