A husband granting his wife something for being kind to him

Q: I am an old man, married to a good Egyptian woman two years ago. She does her best to comfort me. I have no children, and no one will inherit me except my nephews who live in Jeddah, while I live in Al-Wajh. I want to give my wife one-third of my property as a gift, because of her dedication and looking after me, is this permissible?

A: It is permissible for you to give your wife what you mentioned as a gift during your lifetime, in return for her kind service and taking care of you. (Part No. 16; Page No. 188) May Allah grant us success. May Allah's peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions!
