Now updated: Ramadan calendar -


Very recently my uncle and dad have been lying for money. Well its really my uncle my dad is just helping him with it. I understand that this is a sin and the money is haraam, but I don't have the guts to tell my dad and i'm afraid in case I tell my uncle that its haraam and then he will tell my dad. My uncle is receiving benefits and he claims he is disabled and cannot work when he can walk and at least talk,lift and work just fine. He is also a diabetes patient so he is legitimately receiving money for that, but he was not satisfied and had to say he is also disabled and cannot work. It annoys me that he sits in our house all day,watches the TV,complains sometimes about not having a good scented soap yes a good scented soap and then expects us to do whatever he wants. He annoys me in fact he is sitting right behind, but I try to hold my anger in and sometimes I cant. With his new money he has bought and I Phone and is sending money to his kids and wife across the world and the think that makes me even mad is that he says that he will give me £5 or something like that and the next thing you know hes buying all the latest stuff. I don't want his haraam money anyway and I could care less what he does with it its got haraam written all over it for me. He drives me crazy and is also a very nosy person and he use to drink alcohol and maybe even smoke. Finally whenever I pray my salat I usually do it in the same room as him, so whenever I finish the salat I prostrate and say my dua etc.. then I hear him saying remember to pray for me for my wealth and my kids etc... I at that moment just go furious, but i somehow hold my anger in.

Now the question is that when he asks for his dua he is basically telling me to pray for him not to get caught and pray for more money thats haraam. Obviously I will not do that, so when I finish my dua he will ask me did u pray for me then I would reply yes. I obviously did not so is this lie ok? is this lie ok in the eyes of Allah and finally what type of punishments might my uncle/dad get? Thank you.

On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]

Have you tried saying that dua for haram wealth cant be accepted ? It wouldnt be even dua for his benefit because hellfire will not take money.

  1. But as for him who will be given his Record in his left hand, will say: "I wish that I had not been given my Record!

  2. "And that I had never known, how my Account is?

  3. "I wish, would that it had been my end (death)!

  4. "My wealth has not availed me,

  5. "My power and arguments (to defend myself) have gone from me!"

  6. (It will be said): "Seize him and fetter him,

  7. Then throw him in the blazing Fire.

  8. "Then fasten him with a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits!"

  9. Verily, He used not to believe in Allah, the Most Great,

  10. And urged not on the feeding of Al-Miskin (the poor),

  11. So no friend has he here this Day,

  12. Nor any food except filth from the washing of wounds,

  13. None will eat except the Khati'un (sinners, disbelievers, polytheists, etc.).

  14. So I swear by whatsoever you see,

  15. And by whatsoever you see not,

  16. That this is verily the word of an honoured Messenger [i.e. Jibrael (Gabriel) or Muhammad which he has brought from Allah].

Surah al Haqqah
