    Find out who the executor of the estate is and ask them for the money. If they cannot or will not acknowledge the debt, you will have to sue the estate. I hope you have the debt in writing or you won't get far. A lawyer will have to help you.

    do you have anything in writing? . you might have not given $10,000 without any written  thing..if yes then money recovering would be easy , provided your friend had money/asset..

    If you can't afford to walk away, you should never have lent the money. It will be awkward and uncomfortable to approach the widow or children, or whomever remains living. Put your mind to rest first. Forgive him. He is dead. If you have something in writing, you may collect your money. If not, then say a prayer for his family and get on with your life. Best of Luck.

    I know that this debt be paid I think the best thing is to wait to put it off until everything settles down and then go to the family of the friend that owes you and asks the family to pay back in debt. I would hope that you got the transaction on paper rather than hearsay or a handshake

    you either have it in writing or you don't, if you don't, just go to the funeral, say your goodbyes and wish the family well.  If you do have it in writing, you or your solicitor should pass this on to the family's solicitor.  However, this is your friend and his family, this has to be tempered with thought to the effect on the family, financily and emotionaly.  The moment you parted with that money, it was dead, it may be that demanding it puts your friend's family on the street, do you really want that, perhaps the best way is to allow them to pay off as they can afford, friends help each other, you can only receive by giving.

    Did you make a written note, at the time of Loaning the amount to your deceased friend ?

    Because, it is mandatory upon Muslims, to first settle, the debts of the deceased ... if, the person has left any legacy ... or alternatively, have the Loan written off by the Loaner ... before the burial.

    Obviously, you cannot ask the dead for a payback, or a schedule of repayment.
