The driver as responsible for the accident

Q 4: my friend and I were involved in a road accident. My friend who was driving the car at a high speed died (may Allah be merciful to him). I requested him to slow down or to let me drive the car but he did not respond and the accident occurred. It is important to note that the car that was involved in this accident belonged to me. Must I feed poor people or fast to expiate for this? Please answer me. May Allah protect you.

A: The driver has to assume responsibility for the car accident. He has to pay Kaffarah (Expiation) and Diyah (blood money) if he has been convicted of being guilty of all or part of the accident. If someone else shares the responsibility of the accident, the driver only has to pay his portion of the Diyah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
