  • Buying A Gift For A (Singular) Sibling And Not The Others?

    :salams:
    Long story short...
    Sister's school shoes broke (While at school), I insisted that I buy her a new pair as her alternative ones were a tiny bit too small for her which were causing her discomfort...
    Anyways... (My question) I bought my sister a pair of shoes (today) and just a few moments ago I realised that I had treated my siblings unfairly by doing that. (I usually buy her things and neglect the others)

    Would it only be right of me to do the same thing for my other siblings (3 brothers)?
    I'm fairly certain of a hadith which says something across the lines of (Paraphrasing) "If you give something to one of your children then you should (must?) give something to your other children"
    Would it be right to give something to the others too?

    I mean if I do that then they'd all have different shoes and someone will get jealous...............

    What do?

    Wa alaikum salam

    No there is nothing wrong if you give your siblings unequally this applies to parents who should try their best to give all the children equally according to what they need. But obviously everyone wont need the same thing at the same time so they would be given what they need.

    Is your sister the youngest? Sure she must be getting all the attention too...

      Walaykumussalam....

      You should atleast try and treat them all equally.... I know it may not always be possible.. And I understand she is the only sister you have.

      In this case your sister was in need of shoes... I'm sure if your brothers were in need you would try to help them too. And sisters are to be looked after by their mahrams (that is.. I guess if your a brother)

        I gave one of my sis money and when another younger sibling found out they were like WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT WHY not me

        I go coz I dont like you

        she is my fave sibling so she got zee money from me, the rest of you can go scratch

        ==

        anyways back to you

        you gave her something which was practical, its not like you bought her a pack of jelly beans and didnt give them to the others.

        poor girl needed shoes. it was a necessity, but next time their shoes break, you might have to buy them shoes too

                  I thought you was the good Fairy because you're normally kind to all the younger ones on here.

                    I got 3 sisters, I get them things they would need.

                    I bought one of them a vaccum. She wasnt happy with that as a gift for some reason. :s

                    I bought the baby sister a phone because her old one was falling apart. She was happy with that.

                    And the middle sister started complaining how come she didnt get anything. I said she doesnt need anything, then the older one jumped in saying who gives a vaccum as a gift. They both seem to think I was unfair to them.. hmm...
