“It is the duty of a Muslim, who has anything to bequeath, not to let two nights pass without including it in his Will.”

– Sahih Al-Bukhari –

There are numerous references relating to Wills in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

Simply reflecting on just a few of these references should make one realise the importance of writing an Islamic Will.

Helping you to fulfil an important Islamic obligation

A will states who inherits your estate. Without one, you die intestate and your estate is distributed according to the rules set by law. These rules do not cater for your Islamic beliefs and will mean that your estate will not be distributed as prescribed in the Quran and Sunnah.

The Islamic will drafted by us will ensure that the distributions are in accordance with Shariah. It is certainly a mercy to mankind that Allah has already ordained how are assets should be distributed upon death.

“It is prescribed, when death approaches any of you, if he leaves any goods that he makes a bequest to parents and near relatives, according to reasonable usage; this is due from the God-fearing.”

– Surah Al-Baqarah, Quran 2:180

What to include in an Islamic Will

Funeral Wishes

You can specify your funeral and burial rights in your Will in accordance with the practices of Islam such as not having your body subjected to a routine post-mortem and released for burial immediately.

Executors and Trustees

These should be people you trust who will execute on your wishes. They should be those that are good with administration and preferably a similar age or younger than you.

Sadaqah Jariyah

Under Islamic inheritance you can leave up to a 1/3 of your estate to whoever you wish such as a Mosque or any Charity of your choice, as part of Sadaqah Jariyah.
