Bequest to compensate for missed prayers etc.?


A man came to the Prophet, may peace be upon him, and told him that his mother had died and she had missed fasting days. He asked the Prophet if he could fast for her. The Prophet answered, “If she owed a debt, would you pay it for her?” The man answered “of course!” The Prophet said “Debt to God has more priority.” Religious liabilities should be performed during one’s life but if and when they havent this can be taken care of in one’s Will.
