From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 38, Transferance of a Debt from One Person to Another (Al-Hawaala)
Hadith No: 500
Narrated/Authority of Abu Huraira
Whenever a dead man in debt was brought to Allah's Apostle (SAW) he would ask, "Has he left anything to repay his debt?" If he was informed that he had left something to repay his debts, he would offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the Muslims to offer their friend's funeral prayer. When Allah made the Prophet (SAW) wealthy through conquests, he said, "I am more rightful than other believers to be the guardian of the believers, so if a Muslim dies while in debt, I am responsible for the repayment of his debt, and whoever leaves wealth (after his death) it will belong to his heirs."
