The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ruling 2791

The deceased’s Qur’an, ring, sword, and clothes that he had worn or kept to wear belong to the eldest son. If the deceased had more than one of the first three things – for example, he left two copies of the Qur’an or two rings – the obligatory precaution is that the eldest son must arrive at a settlement with the other heirs regarding those things. The same applies to the reading stand (riḥāl) for the Qur’an and the gun, dagger, or other weapons. The sheath of the sword and bookmark for the Qur’an are considered part of those items.
