My brother in law recently died when he went back home for his wedding, he left behind a good amount of credit card debt and loan from government of Canada. We are trying to pay off his debt. If cedit card company can forgive or has a clause in the agreement then does that mean…..we do not have to pay the amount due.
You should clarify this with the government of Canada.
In Shari?ah, if a person takes a loan and passes away, he is not absolved of his debt. It is necessary to pay it from his estate.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
