Returning a grant the father gave to one of his sons to trade in to the heirs after the father's death
Q 3 and 4:
Someone says that his father gave him 20,000 riyals to invest and he returned the money with half the profits without his father's knowledge. Is this permissible for him?
If it is not permissible, what should he do now after his father had died?Another man says that his father gave him 20,000 riyals to invest but his father is dead now. He asks if he should return the money with half the profits to the heirs and take the other half. Please bear in mind that his father did not specify him a fixed percentage of the profits.
The concerned person must pay the original sum of money plus the profits to the heirs, as long as the father has not specified a certain percentage of the profit for them.
