The bequeathed one third is calculated after death, for the money may increase

Q: A man left a will bequeathing one-third of his money, 15,000 Liras, to be given to a number of charitable projects. The estimation of the amount was made in 1387 A.H., (Part No. 16; Page No. 298) but the man died in 1400 A.H. At the time of his death, one-third of his wealth was calculated to be around 200,000 Liras. Which amount should be bequeathed?

A: If the reality is as you mentioned, that the one-third of the man’s wealth had increased his estimation on the day he made his will, the amount of the one-third that counts is the one calculated on the day he died and not on the day he made his will. Therefore, the amount to be bequeathed will be the 200,000 Liras mentioned in the question, as a will is executed after the testator’s death not before it. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
