Ruling 2272

An insane person cannot have disposal over his property. Similarly, a person who has been proclaimed bankrupt (mufallas) – i.e. someone who is prohibited by a fully qualified jurist (al‑ḥākim al‑sharʿī) from having disposal over his wealth due to the claims on him by his creditors – cannot have disposal over his property without authorisation from his creditors. Similarly, a person who is foolish with finances (safīh) – i.e. someone who spends his wealth in futile ways – cannot have disposal over his property without authorisation from his guardian.
