any debts have been settled, the expenses of the funeral

and burial defrayed 28

Baha'u'llah specifies that the order of precedence for payment of these

expenses is first the funeral and burial expenses, then the debts of the

deceased, then the Huququ'llah (see note 125) (Q and A 9). He also

specifies that when applying the estate to these, payment must first be

made out of the residue of the estate and then, if this is insufficient,

out of the residence and personal clothing of the deceased (Q and A 80).
