Should he build a house or give the money to his father to get married?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Should I give my father what he needs of my wealth – if he asks for it – when I want to build a house and my father wants to get married? I am renting a house and I could continue renting, but I really want a house of my own. Should I give priority to building my own house or do I have to give the money to my father so he can get married?

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:

He has to give his father what he needs to get married, especially if his father is in great need of getting married.

Question: if the father wanted to build a house and asked his son for the money, should he give priority to his own house or his father’s house?

Answer: he should give priority to his own house over his father’s house.

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
