Spending on a child

Q 2: What is the ruling on my father's providing housing and food for me, as I am still a student and I have no job? Q 3: I have eighty pounds to spend on housing, clothes and buying study books. Can I spend them on food as well and leave my father's house until Allah makes a way for me to get out from difficulty?

A: If you are poor and do not have money to provide for yourself food, clothing and housing, your father who is well-off has to sustain you according to his financial ability and your needs. However, if you have enough money to sustain yourself, your father does not have to sustain you; you should provide for yourself housing, clothing and food.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
