Elucidating the rules of the Obligatory Spending.


(The one who is solvent is obligated to support) i.e. spend on, (his poor parents and grandparents i.e. the fathers and the mothers,) even if they were not his immediate parents but were higher in lineage; (even if they) i.e. the parents, (were able to earn their living. One is also obligated to support) i.e. spend on, (his descendants, i.e., his children and grandchildren,) among both the males and the females, (who are poor) i.e. they do not have their necessary needs, (and cannot earn their living, because they are non-pubescent; or have of some sort of ailment which prevents their earnings.) However, if the child was able to work, it is permissible for the guardian to impose that on him, then to spend on him from his earnings.

(The husband is obligated to support his wife) who enables him to enjoy her sexually. He supports her with food, clothing, and the like, according to the detail set by the jurisprudents regarding this topic; (and) the husband is obligated (pay her) his wife, (marriage payment (mahr).)

Also, (If the marriage is breached without a reason from the wife,) for example, if a husband divorced his wife due to her bad manners, (the husband must) i.e. is obligated to, (give the wife a compensatory payment-mut^ah.) Example of the breach of their marriage occurring due to a reason from the wife, like if she apostatized, then remained on apostasy until the post-marital waiting period ended.

(The owner of slaves) male and female slaves, (and animals must) is obligated (support them,) among food, clothing, and the like; and he (must not burden them with more labor than they can bear, and must not beat them unjustly.)
