Spending On Ones Family

Abu Mas’ud Al-Badri (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “When someone spends on his family seeking his reward for it from Allah, it is counted as a charity from him.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary:

‘Seeking his reward’ means that one is supporting his family as a duty entrusted by Allah. It is also warranted by compassion for the near ones. A person who does it as a duty ordained by Allah and shows mercy to his deserving relatives to attain His Pleasure then what he spends with this intention on his children will be eligible for reward from Allah.

And Allah Knows Best!
