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)

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.
