As-Salaam Alaikum Sheikh!
I’m sending you this question on behalf of my grandmother. The question is:
I’m a widowed house-wife, I’m blessed with three children, two daughters and one son. My husband was working in railways department back home in India. He passed away two years ago, I heard people saying that pension is haraam as it is coming through bank, so is that true? In that case how are we widowed women supposed to live if we dont have money? Even if we have our sons who can earn and give us but what about those women who have only daughters and no son? How are they supposed to live their life?
So my question is, is pension halaal? I’ll be glad if you could clear my doubt as soon as possible.
