  • Chapter 284
    Prohibition of Procrastinating by a Rich Person to Fulfill his Obligation

    Allah, the Exalted, says:

    "Verily, Allah commands that you should render back the trusts to those, to whom they are due.'' (4:58)

    "Then if one of you entrust the other, let the one who is entrusted discharge his trust (faithfully).'' (2:283)


    1611. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "It is an act of oppression on the part of a person to procrastinate in fulfilling his obligation; if the repayment of a debt due to any of you is undertaken by a rich person, you should agree to the substitution.''
    [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

    1. Evasion or procrastination in the payment of debt, when a person is in a position to make its payment immediately, is prohibited.

    2. If for the settlement of dispute, a rich man is entrusted to the lender for recovery of his debt, the lender should accept this decision. Thus, this Hadith induces one for an amicable way of settling disputes.
