Is it obligatory for a child to pay the debt of his late parents?

Question: Is it obligatory for a child to pay the debt of his late parents? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

No, it is not obligatory. However, if the child does pay it, he would receive a lot of reward. It is mentioned in Kitaabul-Meerath: “Payment of the debt is not incumbent on the heirs. Should they willingly pay the debt, it will be an act of merit.”1
