Prior Rights

There are three things which have priority over meeraath (inheritance). The distribution of the mayyit’s (the deceased) estate will take place only after the execution of these three rights.

These are:

  1. Burial Expenses
  2. Debts
  3. Bequests (wasaaya)

 

All masaa’il on prior rights are taken from Kitaabul Meeraath by Majlisul Ulama of South Africa
