My dad came from the middle east. My mother died and my dad remarried. He was a little low on money and gave his new wife a gold bracelet which originally belonged to my mother with pages of the Qur'an with misc saying on each page. My mom never took it off until she passed away 10 years ago. My dad passed away in January. I asked for the bracelet back and said I will pay whatever it is worth since she nor any of her family are muslim. She denied she had the bracelet. She passed away a month later. Seems like it was bad luck if you ask me. Now I am trying to get the bracelet bad from the rest of the family but they are all playing dumb. I have seen my step mother wearing it, I know they have it. Do you think bad luck happened to them because it was not theirs or just a coincidence?

It's quite likely a coincidence. Please do not worry about the jewellery. They know that you want it back but if they don't want to give it to you, there isn't much you can do as it was given as a gift to your step mother. Each person will have to give up these material things sooner or later. Even they are not going to keep the jewellery forever. It's probably already been sold by them.

The best you can do is show that you are a better person than them.
