I've heard that the father is responsible for his children in-terms of clothing them, providing them with food, shelter (financially to put it simply), as in all the basics of life.
Assuming this is true (if it's not true, let me know and I will delete this question), does Islam specify how long the father is responsible for his son?
For example, if the son is 25 years old and the father is 45 years old, and both the father and son are working. Is the father still responsible for providing his son with cloths, food, shelter etc? I would assume no, but want to get the Islamic view on this.
So my question is this: Is the father responsible for his son financially until the father dies? Or does this responsibility end when the son starts earning or when the son reaches a certain age? Maybe when the son reaches adulthood?
