The donator may, with the idea of the donation remain, stipulate that the gifted person must perform a certain obligation, and this commitment is considered a substitute, and the gifted person must implement the duties imposed on him under the gift and conditional contract in the interest of the donor or one of his relatives. So if he violates these conditional duties without justification and these violation Great efforts were made by the donor, breaking the contract. The acceptance of recourse in the Jordanian Civil Law requires that there is no objection to recourse. We believe that the Jordanian legislator should interfere with amending some articles of the civil law included in the subject of this research, unlike the Iraqi legislator who mentioned a text on the gift of religion in the Iraqi civil law. But its provisions were scattered, besides that the texts of the gift were derived from Islamic jurisprudence but it was not clarified in Formulating its independent characteristics that distinguish it from the gift in general, in contrast to Jordanian law, the gift of religion is a legal behavior that arises with the sole will of the creditor, as it forfeits its right in return for the emergence of its commitment to this forgiveness, which is not claiming the debt.
