Ruling 2232

With a sleeping partnership that is based on the owner giving the worker permission to trade with his property, if the owner or the worker dies, the contract becomes void. This is because if the owner dies, his property is transferred to his heirs and a new sleeping partnership agreement is needed for the property to remain in the possession of the worker. And if the worker dies, the permission is cancelled, because the owner’s permission was given exclusively to him.
