TADBIR. تدبير
Post obit manumission of slaves. In its primitive sense it means looking forward to the event of a business in the language of the law, it means a declaration of a freedom to be established after the master’s death. ‘ As when the master says to his slave, “Thou art free after my death.” The slave so freed is called a mudabbir. (Hamilton’s Hidayah, vol. i. p. 475.) [SLAVERY.]
