The One Who Takes Back His Gift is Like a Dog
The One Who Takes Back His Gift is Like a Dog
I have a brother who came to visit when I was working in a city outside the country in which we and our family reside. I gave him a gift of a sum of money, as an act of kindness, I did not intend it to be a loan, nor did I intend to ask for it back later. He knew that and he took the money and returned to our country where he and our family lived and he used this money to marry. His wife lived with him for a time, after which, there occurred trouble between him and her and his wife became disobedient towards him. After that, my brother made a bequest to me for the sum (Which I had given him) as a debt upon him and he had it attested to. After that, he lived for some time, then Allah took his soul. When I returned to my country following my brother's death, I was informed of the bequest. My brother's wife requested me to produce her share from the legacy of her husband, and I claimed from her the sum which my brother had bequeathed to me, which was the amount I had previously given o him as an act of kindness. And in fact, she presented her share of the inheritance, which was the debt my brother had bequeathed me, and I took it from her and then she took her share from the legacy.

He Endowed a House in Order to Prevent His Nephew From Inheriting
He Endowed a House in Order to Prevent His Nephew From Inheriting
The following question reached the General Presidency for the Administrations of Scientific Researches, Religious Verdicts, Preaching and Guidance:
A man asks, saying that he has a wife, a mother, a half sister and a cousin who will inherit from him and that his cousin is estranged from him, does not contract him and does not help him and that he (the questioner) owns a house which he wishes to give as an endowment to his mother, his wife and his sister. Then after their death, the endowment of the house will revert to some permanent Charitable authority, such as mosque, for example, and that the aim of this is only to prevent his cousin from inheriting. So he asks: Is it permissible from him to do this?

Endowments Cannot be Sold
My father died - may Allah have mercy on him - and he had been left a small, private house by his parents. They charged his with the responsibility of slaughtering for them from the rent of the house throughout his life, then his sons who came after his were to be entrusted with this, but my father sold this house and then he died before he could dispose of its price, so it was included in the inheritance. So now we have a different house which was the property of my father, question is; How do we deal this will, bearing in mind that the value of my grandfather;s own house is not more than fifty thousand Riyals. And is it permissible to invest the value of the house for them in some good works, or to share the building of a mosque? May Allah reward you with goodness.
