Under Islamic laws of inheritance, a Muslim can donate up to 1/3rd of their assets to whoever they wish. We would like to remind you that when making your Islamic will, kindly consider those that are less fortunate and leave this 1/3rd to those that are in hardship either within your family, a non-Muslim, or to a charity organisation so that your legacy can continue to work and help others even after your death as a Sadaqa Jariya, meaning ongoing charitable work.
“O you who believe! Spend of that with which We have provided for you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zaalimoon (wrongdoers)”
With this aim, we have decided to launch a national Islamic Wills awareness campaign with leading charities who will be on our select panel. This will give you the opportunity to support your chosen charity during your lifetime by offering your Zakat and also be able to express an intention in your Islamic Will for one or more charities to benefit from your inheritance.
