Ahmad ibn Mahdee was someone who [despite having] experienced [financial] loss and [an increase in] wealth, he spent 300,000 dirhams on the people of knowledge.
If a person had amassed immense wealth made up of trading in haraam, and then repented to Allaah [from that], is it then permissible for him to perform hajj using this wealth, or donate to charity from it, or [even] get married or build a masjid using it?
As for the Shaykh’s car, then it was as if it were a camel carrying the brothers, because the Shaykh used to take them from one place to another in it.
Never would an hour pass him except that he would give something away in charity, and if he did not have anything [to give away in charity], he would [then] pray two rak’ahs [of voluntary prayer].

What is the ruling regarding giving charity to one who does not pray, bearing in mind he is a relative?
