Question

A woman is financially supported by
her daughter, who works in an interest-
based bank. Is the mother allowed to
accept this monetary gift in normal
conditions? If yes, may she take it for
specific purposes, such as to pay for
the expenses of the journey of Hajj or
‘Umrah (major and minor pilgrimage,
respectively)? May Allah The Almighty
reward you [for your response]!

Answer

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

If the daughter possesses any lawful
money other than the salary she
receives from the bank, there is room
[for granting permission]. If she does
not, however, we should consider the
condition of the mother. If the lady is
poor and needy, there will be no sin on
her in taking the money and she can
then spend it on whatever she likes of
her needs. If she is wealthy, it will not
be permissible for her to accept the
money in normal circumstances, let
alone for [a religious purpose such as]
Hajj or ‘Umrah. That is because this
money is ill-gotten, and it is not
permissible to take gifts, donations or
the like, from one whose income is
entirely unlawful.

Allah Knows best.
