The next question from Muhammad Adam, India. My father left me when I was 18 years old. And I had no one to look after me. My mother left me when I was 11 years old.

00:00:14--> 00:00:56

I stayed as a paying guest and worked to survive. Today Hamdulillah I earn good amount of money to feed myself. Now father asked me to give money to him on monthly basis, which will be around five to 6000 rupees per month, should I give the money to my father and my father didn't take care of me whether the question that my father left him at the age of 18 mother left him at the age of 11, they did not take care of him. And now we've got a good job earning good money, and fathers asking monthly, approximately five to 6000 rupees should you give him or not, I do not know the reason why the father left you. But even if I agree for the sake of argument, hypothetically, that he did not

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

take care of you,

00:00:59--> 00:01:05

if he did not take care of you, and if you did not do his duty, that doesn't mean that you should not do your duty.

00:01:07--> 00:01:50

You as a good central do your duty, and taking care of the parent is a requirement that every human being every Muslim should take care of the parent when they grow up. And Allah says in the Quran in surah facilite chapter number 41 was the metaphor that Repel evil with good, you may never know that the person who the enemy will become your friend and heard your father not enemy, your father, I agree with you did not take care of you, but you have to do your duty. And if you do your duty, inshallah you will go to Jana. So according to me, if your father is asking for five to 6000 rupees, I would say that give him 9000 Give him 10,000 Give him more than 50. If Allah has given you, if

00:01:50--> 00:02:18

Allah has not given you, and if you can afford Python give 5000 Or if you cannot, yet you sacrifice your luxury, and give money to your father, Inshallah, you will be doing a great deal of charity and especially if you're doing to your father, it is your requirement. It is your duty, it's your father. So my suggestion to you is that if he'd asked me for five or 6000 rupees, give me much more, give him 10,000 rupees inshallah that will benefit to this world as well as that
