Q: What is the ruling on the following:A man gave each of his two sons a car during his lifetime, while they were still registered in his name. Are these cars only considered theirs after his death, or are the cars a part of his estate? If they are considered belonging to the two sons, please advise whether it is permissible to buy a car for the second son, as his father had an accident with this car, and it is too damaged to drive; it can only be sold as scrap metal.Should the furniture, dining room and bedroom be estimated and the right of minors be taken from it?Is it permissible to give away his clothes and personal belongings, or should they be estimated and the right of the minors taken from them?He had a library that contained two kinds of
Waqf (endowment) and books that had been bought. His wife says that he used to say he is going to leave these books for his children; at other times she says that he used to say not to sell these books. Is this considered a will?If not, what should I do with these books?
The two cars, furniture and clothes owned by the deceased (Part No. 16; Page No. 467) are all considered a part of his estate. All these items should be estimated and the rights of the minors taken from them. The books that are Waqf cannot be sold; otherwise, they are considered the same as the rest of the estate. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
