Hadhrat Ali (RA) said, “While Rasulullaah (SAW) settled debts before the bequest, you people can read (in the Qur’aan) mention of the bequest before debts.”

[Tirmidhi 2122]

If a person died before settling his debts, these have to be settled from his estate immediately after settling the funeral expenses, even though they may consume all the wealth.
