Hadith Explanation


Poor Dependants Responsibility of State


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever leaves wealth, then it is for his heirs, and whoever leaves poor dependants then it (the responsibility) is for me.” [Sahih Bukhari]

This hadith makes it the responsibility of the Islamic government to settle the debts of a poor and needy person in the event of his death and take care of the financial needs of his family and children. The state, on the other hand, has no right to take anything from the wealth of a deceased.
