Can an Adult Brother be a Gaurdian for a sister and stay with her in a different city than that of their Parents?


I am 24 yrs old Male Muslim, my brother is 19 yrs old and my Sister is 14 yrs old.
I stay with my younger siblings, a brother and sister in the city Hyderabad for Education purpose without my Parents.
We have different beds for Boys and Girls and different blankets for each one of us.
Our parents visit us Once a week for 1 day.
They stay in our native village for financial purposes.
Is it Halal or Haram to stay in this manner?


Thank you for your question.

Definitely, Elder brother can be a guardian for his younger siblings.

May you be successful.
