The applicant was the husband of the deceased, who had died on 13 May 2014 due to illness. The applicant had married the deceased in 1987. The parents of the deceased had also passed away in 2001 and 2011, and the sibling of the deceased had passed away in 1991. As no one else had come forward as a potential beneficiary, the applicant, pursuant to art 49(b) of Law No. 3 of 2006 on Amendments to law No. 7 of 1989 on the Religious Judiciary, requested that he be stipulated by the court as the sole beneficiary of two apartments.
In acceding to the applicant's request, the court, citing arts 171(c) and 174(2) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, acknowledged that the applicant, as the husband of the deceased, was a legitimate beneficiary.
