Permissibility of someone freeing a slave as expiation due on someone else

Q 2: If the money I pay for freeing a Muslim slave is not mine but offered by my brothers, because I was then a student at university, is it permissible for me, or should it be paid from my own money? I appreciate your advice!

A: The money you pay for freeing a Muslim slave does not have to be your own money. There is no harm if your brother helped you to pay this amount.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
