Will I be sinful if I stop my financial support to a person?
October 1, 2016
Q: I have agreed, as goodwill, to support a widowed aunt on a monthly basis. What are my rights here? What if I wish to stop sending financial support to my aunt at some point (or skip sending money for a few months and resume after)? Will it be sinful if I don’t send money to her at times? I don’t have plans to stop financial support and wish to always send her this monthly amount (as sadaqah) but I just want to know.
الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما ومنه الصدق والصواب
A: You will not be sinful if you stop sending financial support to your aunt at some point (or skip sending money for a few months and resume after).
