I have a cousin brother who was going through a lot of financial crisis, was unemployed and had a family to look after. By the grace of Allah I was in a position to help him so I did. He asked for some help every few days and I was able to help him. He got a job now but still every month asks for some monetary help by giving some reason every time. And now I doubt he’s making up those stories. Also I saw some instances which made me believe the money he asks for is based on lies. Now what should I do if he asks for money again? It’s not right in my opinion to keep supporting him if he’s lying.

It’s good to give him but if you feel he is taking advantage of you, you don’t have to. You should not end the relationship with him. You can also give him something minimal if you feel that he doesn’t need anymore.
