Thought I would share this.
Posting Qur’anic Verses
Q.1. Is it appropriate to hang written verses from the Qur’an on walls with the intention of remembering and memorizing them?
Q.2. What is the way to make a will concerning one’s jewelry so that it could earn us a reward after death?
A.1. Muslims have always put up some fine calligraphy with verses from the Qur’an, with the intention of reflecting on their meaning and remembering their message. This is perfectly appropriate. Each time we read them we earn a reward. This is different from posting them believing that they bring us benefit or protect us from harm. The fact that one intends to reflect on their meaning and implement their message makes such an action commendable.
A.2. Jewelry is like any sort of property with regard to will and inheritance. You cannot make a will concerning all your jewelry if this represents the majority of your property. The point here is that from the Islamic point of view, we do not own our property. It all belongs to God, and He places us in charge of it during our lifetime. When we die, we have no control over its usage. It goes back to God, so that it will be shared out by our heirs in accordance with the system of inheritance God has outlined. However, as the Prophet says, God has granted us an additional favor, allowing us to make a will in respect of a portion of our property not exceeding one third of its total. Thus we can make a will within this maximum limit, in favor of some poor people, or relatives who are not our heirs, or for some charitable purpose. We should try to make sure that the beneficiaries deserve such benefit.
