Parents’ access to their children’s income

Do my parents have a right to my income?


The assumption that parents have the right to take their son's income is incorrect. Parents are certainly entitled to be looked after by their sons, or indeed by their daughters, if they have insufficient or no income of their own. However, they do not have the right to take their money or property without their consent. In this respect, what applies to a son also applies to a daughter. Both males and females have the same rights of ownership and equal personal and financial independence.

Both sons and daughters must be dutiful to their parents and look after them if they need to be looked after.

And God Almighty knows best.
