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.
