Hadith on Wills: Giving charity on behalf of deceased parents

Abu Huraira reported: A man said to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, “My father has died and he left behind some property without drafting a will for it. While his sin be expiated if I give charity on his behalf?” The Prophet said, “Yes.”
