Nazr Money


For what purposes the Nazr money can be used?

E g someone makes a niyyat that if his wish is accomplished, he would give some money out


The Nazr which brings compulsion has to be pronounced in a specific formula declaration. If it has not been done, such Nazr is not a legitimate Nazr in terms of Sharia rulings.

However, if you want to give some charity, it could be given to anyone who is needy.

In the legitimate Nazr too, the money has to be given to those on whom you have made Nazr. If you have pronounced that you will give to the needy people, you should give to needy and likewise the other examples.
