Looking after one’s widowed mother

Q: My step sister and brother want to sell our family house and want their share? They have already forced my mum into selling the shops and got
40% of the share! Now where is my widowed mother supposed to live? If the house is sold? Is it Islamic?


A: It is the responsibility of you and your siblings to take good care of your mother, otherwise all of you will be greatly sinful.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
