Favoring a specific child


Question: I have several children. I wish to sell my shop to my one son who has been much more helpful and diligent. My other children feel offended. Am I being unjust?

Answer: No, you are not being unjust. In the Shariah, you are free to sell your business for whatsoever price you want to and to whomsoever you want to. As long as you are within the confines of the Shariah, ignore the displeasure of the others which in reality is a displeasure against Allah’s Command.
