Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
The house that I live in with my family was bought by my father by bank and insurance company shares and their dividents (hence haram source). Is it permissible for me to live in it. If the answer is NO, then can I pay them rent on a reasonable basis.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
If you can do without living there, then that is better. Otherwise, there is no sin in benefitting from it, and there is no need to pay rent etc., but you should advise your father to put right this wrong and to avoid these evil sources of earning.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
