Some people collect the money of the deceased and put it beside the Mus-haf (copy of the Qur'an), then all the attendees put their hands on it (the Mus-haf) and endow the heirs' money without their permission. What is the ruling on this?
This act is Batil (null and void), because the deceased's money is only the right of the heirs in accordance with Allah's rules for distribution. (Part No. 16; Page No. 151) It is only permissible to take it from them with their permission and complete willingness. The Messenger (peace be upon him) said,
It is unlawful to take a Muslim's money, unless they willingly give it.
This Waqf is Batil, because it involves injustice and unlawful taking of people's money. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
