icdbd-QA/0030: Father’s Income is not halal
My father’s income sources are not completely halal at all, he is working for an Insurance company(so far I know it’s not permissible in Islam),he also runs an immigration service business, has some share business , may be some halal sources too. My father prays his salah but doesn’t have proper knowledge of Islam.
1.My question is do I have right over his property or money,since his earning is mixture of halal and haram??
2. I want to start a halal business by the help of his money?? Can I use his money to run a halal business or Can I take his money as a loan??
3.Though my livelihood,education is taken care of with his money, how much I am accountable for this??
Answer: [By Dr. Manzur-e-Ilahi]
Praise be to Allah.
1. If you are meaning inheritance, then, yes it is permissible for you to take it after his death. But, if you definitely know about a portion of it to be haram, then it is better if you give away that potion in charity (sadaqa)!
2.Yes, you can take loan for business from him.
3.Since you are an adult now, it is wajib for you to make naseehah to your father. If you can not do without taking money from your father for whatever purposes (education or otherwise,) take only as much as you need.
And Allah knows the best!
