Q: The Court of
Makkah Al-Mukarramah (Makkah, the Honored) issued a title
no. 12/25 on 27/12/1401 A.H. confirming the death of Ibrahim Abdul-Rahman Falatah.
The title also states that he has no inheritor except for his wife,
Rahmah bint Muhammad Falatah. Should all the deceased property be given to his wife or should she just receive her share of inheritance and the rest of the inheritance remains till a blood relation claims it?
If the reality is as mentioned, the wife of the deceased deserves one fourth of his legacy and the rest of it remains as a trust till a deserving relation appears. (Part No. 16; Page No. 503) Otherwise, it should be placed in Bayt-ul-Mal (Muslim treasury). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
