Q 1: What is the Islamic ruling on
children raised from their father's ill-gotten earnings?
It is not permissible for a father to raise his children from ill-gotten earnings. This is well-known to the questioner. As for the children, they are blameless; it is the father who is responsible.If the entire household was established from stolen money, the heirs should return the money to its owners, if known; otherwise, they should give it in charity, such as maintaining Masjids (mosque) and supporting the poor on behalf of the owner. Likewise, if a part of the household is out of stolen money and some is from the grandfather's money, the heirs should return the equivalent of the stolen money to its owners, if they are known; otherwise, they should spend it in charitable causes.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
