Fulfil an important Islamic duty… Make an Islamic Will
If you die without leaving a will, your wealth will be distributed in accordance with the English rules on intestacy-which do not apply the same criteria as those laid down in Islamic law.
“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)
It gives you peace of mind, ensuring that your wishes after death are respected and followed; whether it is regarding your funeral arrangements or your estate an Islamic Will shall help avoid any potential family disputes. Also it will save your family time and money from applying to the courts to administer your estate. Islamic Wills specify how much of the estate belongs to the family and the amount you leave for on-going charity better known as Saddaqh Jariyah. This instruction to leave assets to the masjid or any other form of charity will no doubt gain the deceased endless rewards in the hereafter Insha’Allah.
