Data collection used qualitative method and phenomenology approach. Data analysis used descriptive analysis. The data from the field was collected, processed, reduced and then concluded. It is concluded that there are three patterns of giving hibah: the first, the treasure is granted entirely to the heirs before the heirs passed away. The surviving heir is usually set aside for living expenses and needs. The heir is usually living with the youngest child called, the ‘ragil.' When he dies, the child who tookcare will inherit the wealth. Second, inheritance is distributed after the heir dies.
