# Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera – Inheritance Issues Don’t Delay in Inheritance

The speaker discusses the process of dividing assets and negotiating values with a mother and sister's children after the death of a family member. The process is negotiated and done according to the family's agreement, and the family is given a share of the value of the business. The speaker also mentions the importance of not giving anyone the share of the value of the business after the family has agreed to it.
00:00:00 --> 00:00:03

Don't delay an inheritance distribution. Otherwise, it's just

00:00:03 --> 00:00:08

going to get more complicated. When the disease passes away, give

00:00:08 --> 00:00:12

it some time, you know, everybody's calm and everything,

00:00:12 --> 00:00:15

and then try to sort it out as soon as possible.

00:00:16 --> 00:00:20

Right, try to sort it out as soon as possible. Now, there are two

00:00:20 --> 00:00:22

stages to this one is you have to sit down, determine all the

00:00:22 --> 00:00:27

assets. And when a person dies, their clothing, everything is part

00:00:27 --> 00:00:31

of the assets, right? Everything that belongs to them, the cash,

00:00:31 --> 00:00:33

the properties, the

00:00:34 --> 00:00:37

whatever they have inside the house, everything is up to be

00:00:37 --> 00:00:40

divided. So the first stage is you get together, and then you

00:00:40 --> 00:00:45

determine who gets what, you know, you figure out what shares a

00:00:45 --> 00:00:49

percentage everybody needs to receive. And then you decide that,

00:00:49 --> 00:00:52

okay, this is one six for you, and this is for you, and this is for

00:00:52 --> 00:00:55

you, all of that, then there's the distribution, so then you actually

00:00:55 --> 00:00:58

divide everything up, right, and there's a whole procedure to them.

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

If you cannot divide it, let's just say the mother still staying

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

in the house, and you're gonna allow her to stay in the house.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:05

Right?

00:01:06 --> 00:01:10

That's fine. But at least sit down together and determine what each

00:01:10 --> 00:01:14

person shares and of what, let's just say that there's someone,

00:01:14 --> 00:01:18

you've got cash, and you've got the property. And there's some

00:01:18 --> 00:01:21

people who say, Look, I'd rather keep the property, I don't want

00:01:21 --> 00:01:25

the cash. And some say we want the cash, you can negotiate the cup,

00:01:25 --> 00:01:30

the brother and sister inheritors, who say they want the cash, they

00:01:30 --> 00:01:34

can take the cash, and then you're left with the house. Now you can

00:01:34 --> 00:01:37

let your mother stay in there, or whatever the case is, that's fine.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:40

But at least it's all negotiated and done. I'll give you an

00:01:40 --> 00:01:44

example. Somebody passed away. And he left behind several pieces of

00:01:44 --> 00:01:50

land and property in India. Right now, after the death.

00:01:52 --> 00:01:56

Two of the brothers or one of the brothers said that, we will manage

00:01:56 --> 00:01:59

this, and we'll pay you out.

00:02:00 --> 00:02:03

That's they said, We'll manage this, and we'll pay you out the

00:02:03 --> 00:02:04

sisters that will pay you out.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:10

So they said, that's fine. But they never came back to them. And

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

never, they never said anything, they did not tell them what the

00:02:12 --> 00:02:16

value of the assets were, they did not give them any money. Nothing.

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

After, I don't know, 10 years or whatever,

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

they they are giving

00:02:24 --> 00:02:28

a certain amount of money to each one of the others, right, the

00:02:28 --> 00:02:28

sisters and so on.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

What's going on,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:38

what they did was the value of the land at the father's death, they

00:02:38 --> 00:02:39

kept that same value.

00:02:41 --> 00:02:44

They only telling everybody what the value is now. And then they

00:02:44 --> 00:02:49

try to pay everybody according to that, even though that those

00:02:49 --> 00:02:52

assets have now increased by five to 10

00:02:53 --> 00:02:58

times. So they're paying after 10 years. And they're still giving

00:02:58 --> 00:03:01

them the price of 10 years ago, whereas there was no negotiation

00:03:01 --> 00:03:04

or determination at that time as to what it was and what exactly

00:03:04 --> 00:03:09

was going to happen. The sisters, they just assumed that

00:03:10 --> 00:03:13

they will figure it all out, let them know. And then they'll tell

00:03:13 --> 00:03:16

them that was the idea. So that's why they all gave the money back.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

And they said no, we want it according to today's price,

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

because it was left like that.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:25

That's why it's not worth doing that. Sit down, determine the

00:03:25 --> 00:03:29

value of it, by everybody's agreement, get a surveyor if you

00:03:29 --> 00:03:34

want to otherwise just do a valuation at home, then if you

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

want to keep it like that for everybody, that's fine. It's

00:03:36 --> 00:03:40

everybody's, if you don't, and two or one person wants to buy

00:03:40 --> 00:03:44

everybody else, then they can negotiate that then and then say,

00:03:44 --> 00:03:46

okay, I purchase

00:03:47 --> 00:03:50

all of those lands from you at this price. That's the agreement,

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

but I'm going to pay you in, you know, so many years. If they

00:03:52 --> 00:03:56

agree, that's fine, then you fix the price. Now you can pay now, if

00:03:56 --> 00:04:00

you paid them after 10 years, you you only have to pay them for that

00:04:00 --> 00:04:03

price. There's no interest in Islam, right? And you've agreed

00:04:03 --> 00:04:06

and it's up to them if they want to give you that facility to pay

00:04:06 --> 00:04:10

later. If they don't they say no, we want one in two years, we own

00:04:10 --> 00:04:14

the money in one year, women in five years, they can do that. But

00:04:14 --> 00:04:14

even then

00:04:15 --> 00:04:19

the it's fixed if you didn't do that, and you just said I'd like

00:04:19 --> 00:04:22

to buy it, but you didn't tell him how much you're gonna buy it for

00:04:22 --> 00:04:25

how much it's worth, then it was just an offer. And there was no

00:04:25 --> 00:04:28

proper acceptance, no proper agreement, because there's

00:04:28 --> 00:04:32

ignorance and unawareness and ambiguity in what you exactly

00:04:32 --> 00:04:37

agreed upon. So that's why it will remain everybody's ownership until

00:04:37 --> 00:04:41

you actually sit down and decide among everybody. For example,

00:04:42 --> 00:04:46

let's say person passed away and he had a business in which some of

00:04:46 --> 00:04:49

his sons were working and others were not. Right. Some of his

00:04:49 --> 00:04:53

family members were working and others were not. And they did not

00:04:53 --> 00:04:57

bother talking about it. They thought oh, it's ours or whatever.

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

Now everybody's gonna have a different idea in their mind.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:02

Those who are working in the business they think that they

00:05:02 --> 00:05:04

should now own more of this business because they're the ones

00:05:04 --> 00:05:07

who are continuous, maybe they've even improved the business and so

00:05:07 --> 00:05:10

on. Right now after 10 years, they decided, okay, let's do something,

00:05:10 --> 00:05:13

you know, give us our share, give us our share. So now they want to

00:05:13 --> 00:05:17

give them the share of the value of the business as it was, when

00:05:17 --> 00:05:20

the father died, you can't do that anymore. Because there was no

00:05:20 --> 00:05:24

negotiation and agreement then at that time, they just carried on so

00:05:24 --> 00:05:27

while they can take a salary or whatever the case is, but the

00:05:27 --> 00:05:31

business now with its increase is belongs to everybody. Because it

00:05:31 --> 00:05:35

was their assets and they continue to be shareholders in that now had

00:05:35 --> 00:05:39

they agreed straightaway that look, the business is is this much

00:05:40 --> 00:05:43

and if you guys don't want to be part of it, we'll buy you out. So

00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

they agree on a some whether they paid their money or not. At least

00:05:46 --> 00:05:49

they've agreed they finalize the sale, they can chase them for the

00:05:49 --> 00:05:52

money, then in that case, it becomes fixed and that is what

00:05:52 --> 00:05:55

they will set it to them for Jazak Allah here for listening. May

00:05:55 --> 00:05:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you. And if you're finding this useful,

00:06:00 --> 00:06:00

you know

00:06:02 --> 00:06:06

as they say to that like button and subscribe button and forwarded

00:06:06 --> 00:06:10

on to others, just like aloha and Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi

00:06:10 --> 00:06:11

Wabarakatuh
