Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Assalam alaikum,
Is it permissible to give the interest money generated from fixed deposit to one of my uncle who is in need of money?
I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.
Yes, you can give such monies to your poor uncle as this is a valid avenue for disposing of accumulated, unlawful wealth.
However, you should take the reasonable means to free yourself from the interest bearing account. Ask Allah Most High to facilitate your affairs and seek the counsel of local, Godfearing scholars.
