Topic: Spending Money given for Iftar and Suhoor on other Expenses   (No-13457)

Q At my workplace, apart from my normal salary, I receive an extra allowance during the Holy month of Ramadan, with the condition that the extra money is spent on iftar and suhoor. Am I bound by this condition? Can I spend the money from this allowance on anything other than iftar and suhoor?

aWhen receiving money as a gift, there is no obligation to spend it solely on the expense specified by the giver. It can also be used for other expenses. However, it is advisable to spend it according to the giver's wish.


العنایۃ شرح الھدایۃ: (19/9)
"الْهِبَةُ عَقْدٌ مَشْرُوعٌ لِقَوْلِهِ – عَلَيْهِ الصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَامُ – «تَهَادَوْا تَحَابُّوا» وَعَلَى ذَلِكَ انْعَقَدَ الْإِجْمَاعُ (وَتَصِحُّ بِالْإِيجَابِ وَالْقَبُولِ وَالْقَبْضِ) أَمَّا الْإِيجَابُ وَالْقَبُولُ فَلِأَنَّهُ عَقْدٌ، وَالْعَقْدُ يَنْعَقِدُ بِالْإِيجَابِ، وَالْقَبُولِ، وَالْقَبْضُ لَا بُدَّ مِنْهُ لِثُبُوتِ الْمَلِكِ".

الدر المختار: (688/5)
(وَ) حُكْمُهَا (أَنَّهَا لَا تَبْطُلُ بِالشُّرُوطِ الْفَاسِدَةِ) فَهِبَةُ عَبْدٍ عَلَى أَنْ يُعْتِقَهُ تَصِحُّ وَيَبْطُلُ الشَّرْطُ"۔

Allah the Almighty knows best.
