Helping one's sons financially in order to cover the expenses of marriage
Allah has granted me many children (may Allah guide and bless them). Some of them have graduated from university, married, and started working, whereas others are not yet married. Would it be wrong of me to help my unmarried children to get married, without helping those who are already married?
Please advise me, may Allah reward you with the best reward! As-salamu ‘alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh (May Allah’s Peace, Mercy, and Blessings be upon you)!
It is obligatory for you to help those of your children who need to get married, if they can not afford to do so on their own, and if you are able to do so. You do not have to give your married children, who could afford to get married with their own money, as much as you give to the needy ones, as this is regarded as the obligatory financial support that you have to provide. This is not judged the same as gifts that must be given evenly among your children. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
