A sick daughter dying after the mother gave her kerosene to drink

A: If the case as is mentioned above, the mother of the daughter must make kaffarah (Part No. 21; Page No. 364) for involuntary manslaughter, since she is the reason behind her death. That is because kerosene is a harmful and flammable substance, not a medicine for diseases as she was informed. Thus, she must repent to Allah (Exalted be He) and seek His forgiveness for this action, and not do it again in the future. The Kaffarah assigned to involuntary manslaughter is freeing one believing slave. If she does not find one or cannot afford it, she must fast two consecutive months.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions.
