Consuming food bought with the money of a father who works in a tobacco company
Q: My father and I live in two separate apartments. He has worked at a tobacco manufacturer for 30 years. It happens that he buys some foods and brings them to me.
I also use the money he earns from his work in this company.
Are his earnings Haram (prohibited), and is it permissible for me and my children to eat from the food bought from his money? It is noteworthy that I work at an aluminum factory. Please, advise.
As for the past years, we ask Allah to forgive you In sha'a-Allah (if Allah wills). However in the future, you should ensure that your wealth is lawful and that the things offered to you by others is lawful as well. Moreover, you should advise your father, call him to the good and encourage him to obtain lawful earnings. You should treat him with kindness, may Allah guide him to the true path.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
