Question

assalam alaikum i am the youngest
brother out of three brothers and two
elder brothers have been married. both
the wives of my brother tell me not to
give financial assistance for livelyhood
to my elder brothers. should i quit
giving financial assistance, as they
resisted it. and what are the various
ways to assist their families? both
brothers can earn only for a simple life.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

You should not stop your financial
support to your brothers and you
should not take into consideration the
discouragement of their wives from
supporting them especially that they
need your support. Indeed, one’s
relatives are the most deserving of his
kindness, and donating money to them
combines two benefits, the benefit of
giving to charity and the benefit of
keeping ties with kinship. Salmaan Ibn
‘Aamir, may Allah be pleased with him,
narrated that the Prophet said:

“ Giving charity to the poor is
considered charity, and giving charity to
a relative is two things: charity and
keeping ties with kinship.” [Ahmad, At-
Tirmithi, An-Nasaa’i, and Ibn Maajah]

Allah Knows best.
