“It is the duty of every Muslim who has anything to bequest not to let two nights pass without writing a Will about it.” -Sahih al-Bukhari
Shariah-Compliant Islamic Wills UK
Our Solicitors are experts in Islamic Will writing in the UK. We will help you to understand the rules of Shariah compliant Islamic Wills
- The importance of the Islamic Will (Wasiyya) is clear from a number of Hadith, such as that quoted above. Observance with the Islamic laws of inheritance carries the potential of great blessing and mercy from our Creator, as mentioned in Surah An-Nisa. The Islamic laws of inheritance provide for a specific distribution, as mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah and codified by scholars. However, unless you make a valid Islamic Will, your estate will not be distributed in accordance with Islamic laws of inheritance and you will not be able to leave a Wasiyya. The Wasiyya is the portion of up to a third of your estate which you can leave to anyone who does not automatically inherit under the Islamic laws of inheritance.
