Asalamualaikum Mufti Saab
Maaf for e-mailing you directly ..
There are a few things which are seriously bothering me and thus I need your expert advice.
Background :- Both my parents have passed away and i am 23years of age and married.
My father had LIFE insurance policies and Investments and when he died they got paid out to us.
I have distributed all that money according to my fathers Sharait will but later this is was happend –
1) My intention from the beginning from my share was to keep the capital part and give the rest away but other family members advised me not to give it away so i stopped. Then as the months went by my father-in law needed a loan and asked me to give him the insurance money which i did and he was to repay it back but he has not done so yet.
2)Then there was a house for sale and i did not want to go to the bank for a loan so i bought it with the insurance money but made an intention to take money from my salary and give it to charity every month end but I realise now that it is very difficult.
3)About the investments money we were told by the broker that we could take 10% and give it away and regard the rest as halaal which I did but now people are telling me that because it was invested by organizations like old mutual etc i have to give the whole lot away. The problem with that is mufitsaab I used all of that money already.
4)I am scared now and think oneday when my eyes close and i have not settled things yet i will be punished severely for what i have done. Is there something I can do to make things right again.
