Islamic Wills (al-wasiyya)
"There is a share for men and a share for women from what is left by parents and those nearest related, whether, the property be small or large - a legal share." (Qur'an 4:7)

"It is the duty of a Muslim who has anything to bequest not to let two nights pass without writing a will about it."
(Sahih al-Bukhari)

He cannot bequest more than 1/3 of his net estate unless the other heirs consent to the bequest or there are no legal heirs at all or the only legal heir is the spouse who gets his/her legal share and the residue can be bequeathed.
Narrated Sa‘d ibn Abi Waqqas (RA): "I was stricken by an ailment that led me to the verge of death. The Prophet came to pay me a visit. I said, "O Allah's Apostle! I have much property and no heir except my single daughter. Shall I give two-thirds of my property in charity?" He said, "No." I said, "Half of it?" He said, "No." I said, "One-third of it?" He said, "You may do so, though one-third is also too much, for it is better for you to leave your offspring wealthy than to leave them poor, asking others for help..." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahah Muslim, Muwatta, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah.)
When a Muslim passes away, there are 4 key obligations which need to be carried out.

  • Payment of the deceased’s debts
  • Payment of the deceased’s expenses
  • Executing the deceased’s will
  • Distributing the deceased’s remaining estate their successors, in compliance with Sharia Law

From looking at the above extracts from the Qu’ran and Hadith, as well as the obligations upon the executor (al-wasi), it is apparent; the importance of complying with Islamic wills upon Muslims and is an opportunity to ascertain a great reward from the Almighty. Lawtec Solicitors are able to assist in Islamic wills, and are able to not only meet the clients wishes but also act in accordance with Shariah Law and also under the law of England and Wales.
