Q&A: Winding up the Estate


Wednesday, 06 February 2019 05:59

Q: My father passed away approximately seven years ago. My brother is the sole executor of the estate. However he refuses to wind up the estate. Over the years since my father’s demise, my brother has continued to run the business and deal in the assets of the estate at his own discretion. Every few months we receive some money which we are told is “the inheritance”, but there is no detail, nor have we seen any financials to date. Everyone is keeping quiet to avoid any problems. Is it permissible for the executor to sell off any asset at his discretion and is it correct for him to refuse to wind up the estate?

The Maktab

Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was once proceeding to a certain place for some task when he passed by a grave. On looking at the grave, Allah Ta‘ala showed him that angels of punishment were torturing the inmate of the grave.

Sometime later, when Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) had completed his task and was returning, he again passed by the grave. However, Allah Ta‘ala now showed him that instead of angels of punishment, there were angels of mercy at the grave, bearing platters of divine radiance!

Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was surprised at this sudden change in condition. He thus performed salaah and engaged in du‘aa, begging Allah Ta‘ala to reveal to him what had caused the punishment of the inmate to cease and be replaced with His special mercy.

Allah Ta‘ala sent revelation to Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) informing him thus:

Safe from Fitnah


Wednesday, 06 February 2019 05:55

“What is the way to gain salvation (from fitnahs)?” This was the very concise question that Sayyiduna ‘Uqbah bin ‘Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) posed to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Subhaanallah! This was the main concern of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) - how to gain salvation from the fitnahs (evil and mischief) of this world as well as the torments of the Hereafter. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gave a most concise reply to the concise question. He said: “Guard your tongue, let your house be sufficient for you and cry over your sins”. (Tirmizi #2406). This is an all time remedy for remaining safe from the fitnahs of this world and the next.

Investment or Liability


Friday, 17 August 2018 10:06

When a father gazes adoringly at his newborn baby in his arms, it is not a mere child that he sees. Rather, many parents see a Haafiz of the Quraan who will cause them to be crowned on the Day of Qiyaamah, or they see an ‘Aalim of Deen who Allah Ta‘ala will use to dispense guidance among people. The least is that they see an upright and pious man or woman with sound values who will succeed in both worlds. In their young children, they envision different dreams, desires and aspirations, chief among them the desire for their children to be an investment for their Aakhirah. They hope that their children will be a genuine asset and profitable investment that will assist them and prove beneficial after their demise.

If a total stranger had to jump into your car, start the engine and try to take the car for a drive, what would you do? Naturally, one would become angered and, out of possessiveness, he would evict the trespasser from his vehicle. It would also not be farfetched to imagine that he would even physically assault the offender for interfering with what belonged to him.

Casual Chat

Now imagine that a strange man greets your wife and casually begins chatting to her (the same applies to social media chatting), or shakes her hand, or even tries to hug her. While many men would not allow the hug, or maybe the handshake, some men would allow the conversation, while there are yet others who actively promote it. In fact, some men even take offense if they are not introduced to an associate’s wife. Even many parents who are regarded as more conservative tend to allow their children to establish a relationship, communicate and go out with a boy or girl on the basis of them ‘being engaged’, not realizing that they are actually in zina.
