If a late person is debtor to anyone, the debt will be paid off from his left property. But, instead of paying debt from the property of the late person, if any heir pays the debt from his own will, it will be alright.

وعنه قال: أتى رجل الى النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال: ان أختى نذرت أن تحج و انها ماتت فقال النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم: لو كان عليها دين اكنت قاضيه قال: نعم قال: فاقض دين الله فهو أحق بالقضاء (مشكاة)
