Narrated Ibn Umar: I heard Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) saying, “All of you are guardians and responsible for your charges: the Ruler (i.e. Imam) is a guardian and responsible for his subjects; and a man is a guardian of his family and is responsible for his charges; and a lady is a guardian in the house of her husband and is responsible for her charge; and a servant is a guardian of the property of his master and is responsible for his charge.” I think he also said, “And a man is a guardian of the property of his father.”(Sahih Bukhari)

Debts 2


Narrated Salama bin Al-Akwa: A dead person was brought to the Prophet (PBUH) so that he might lead the funeral prayer for him. He asked, “Is he in debt?” When the people replied in the negative, he led the funeral prayer. Another dead person was brought and he asked, “Is he in debt?” They said, “Yes.” He (refused to lead the prayer and) said, “Lead the prayer of your friend.” Abu Qatada said, “O Allah’s Apostle (PBUH)! I undertake to pay his debt.” Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) then led his funeral prayer. (Sahih Bukhari)
