Question
QUESTION: salaam sir,

i am a divorced lady, i have two daughters. i am doing a job to support my daughters. their father(my ex husband) sends monthly maintenance after a long period of fighting in court, but he sends a limited amount in which i can only pay the school fees.although he has no issue to send enough money for his daughters. beside of these things i have to fulfill my daughters other necessities, i have no other way to increase my income. my job earning is also not enough so mostly i was living upset. i had few jewelry pieces so i sold them out and purchased saving certificate to increase some income. i am getting 9% of that every month and i can fulfill my daughters essentials now. i am not keeping them on a high level as i always tell them to live happy in whatever we have and realize them showing other poor peoples life.i want to ask that the way of income i applied is against of Islam? because i am the only supporter of my daughters and i tried to find other good job where i can earn more but it didn't happened yet. i live in a small city where job is hard to find. i give poor rate also. please guide me

jazakalla!

ANSWER: Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

Assalmalaikum

Dear Sister,

I am sorry to learn about your tough situation. May Allah provide you a better husband and make the future easier and comfortable for you and the kids.

As for the 9% they give you per month or per annum ?
Is the arrangement sharing of profit or straight interest. What do they consider this payment...profit earned or interest earned on the principal amount.

I wish I could do something for you. Which city/country do you live in ?
