A question about respect and love for your mother even if your mother is cruel to your wife and children.


If a person mother is cruel to his wife and children in past.Is it right to buy a house for her and her six sons who are married and well settled.On the other hand he does not have that much money for his children and his chldren’s future and he is buying a house for his mother and six sons and does not save that money for his children’s future and studies.Is it right in Islam.


Assalamu Alaykum

Thank you for your Question

It is good that he is considering his mother, but It is not wajib upon him to do so. The nafaqah of parents is only wajib on the son if they are poor.
