A person says: "My father became ill in the year 1391 AH. and on the 29th of Thul Qa'dah in that year, he bequeathed a third of his property as an endowment and he made me the executor, fearful that his illness might be terminal. But by the Power of Allah, Most Glorified, Most High, he lived for four years after Allah cured him of this illness. Allah, Most Glorified, Most High took him in the year 1395 AH., and I - after the writing of the will in which my father made me responsible for the (aforementioned) third and after Allah had cured him - though that the will was invalidated and when we searched for it, we did not find it. After we had become tired of looking and searching for it in vain, we disregarded the matter because the testator was alive, still being sustained (by Allah) and in good health. But Allah ordained that death that come to him after an illness on the 2nd of Thul Qa'dah 1395 AH. He died without leaving a will - may Allah have mercy on him. The property which he left amounts to thirty two thousand , one hundred and forty eight (32,148) Riyals. The distribution of the inheritance was completed among the heirs - two wives, two daughters and four sons - and nothing remained of the money after all the heirs had taken their share. Then on the 10th Jumada Ath-Thani 1396 AH>, we found the will document which had been written in the year 1391 AH., during his first illness and in which he made me the executor of a third of his property. We are now at a loss regarding this matter; the property has been distributed and we do not know what to do, and we fear what we have sinned. Bearing in mind that the deceased was blessed with righteous children whose intention it to show obedience to their parents, what is the ruling?
