Is it necessary for family members to pay meher, to the divorced ex-wife of a deceased person?


If a man died ,he did not pay his full meher to his ex wife.  So, is it compulsory for the family members to pay his due meher to the divorced ex-wife on behalf of him?


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

Yes, the remaining meher should be paid from the inheritance but if the husband doesn’t have anything in inheritance, then there is no responsibility on the deceased family to pay the meher.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
