Bequeathing to one of the heirs

Q 1: I have a two-floor villa in Riyadh and I would like to bequeath it to my children and my wife. What is the legal Fatwa in this regard? May Allah reward you the best.

A: Heirs are not to be bequeathed as related by the Five Compilers of Hadith except for Al-Nasa'y on the authority of Abu Umamah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Allah has given each person his rights and no will can be made in favor of an heir." You are only permitted to endow this villa to the needy heirs and maintain it if necessary. (Part No. 16; Page No. 321) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
