Donating A Deceased’s Clothing With The Presence Of Minor Heirs


Old clothing that belonged to the deceased was given a value and thereafter given away to needy people. This value must be paid back to the estate because of the minor.

Must this value be paid back equally by all the heirs or according to their shares?  The value was said to be R4000. 2 heirs inherit 10% , 1 heir inherits 5% and 1 heir inherits 25%.


In the enquired case, there is no need to return the entire value of the clothing just because there is an minor; rather, the matured heirs who gave away the clothes etc. to the needy will only secure and reserve the value that the minor heir deserves which will be given to him/her when he/she becomes mature, if every matured heir had agreed to give the deceased’s clothes etc. to the unprivileged ones.

ثم تصح الوصية لأجني من غير إجازة الورثة، كذا في التبيين ولا تجوز بما زاد على الثلث إلا أن يجيزه الورثة بعد موته وهم كبار ولا معتبر بإجازتهم في حال حياته، كذا في الهداية.
