Cheque Issued By A Deceased Before Death (Continued)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Question: Assalaamu Alaikum:

ACCORDING TO MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE BANKING SYSTEM THE BANK WILL NOT HONOR ANY CHECK PRESENTED AFTER A PERSON HAS DIED. THEREFORE THE CHECK WILL BE RETURNED UNPAID TO ZAID WHO WILL THEN HAVE TO CLAIM THE SUM FROM UMAR’S ESTATE.


Answer: Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

Yes, this will occur since the money given to you is a debt upon Umars’ estate.

And Allah Knows Best.
