“It is prescribed, when death approaches any of you, if he leaves wealth that he make a bequest to parents and next of kin, according to reasonable usage; this is due from the Allah-fearing.” (Surah Al-Baqara 2:180).

“It is not permissible for any Muslim who has something to will, to stay for two nights without having his last will and testament written and kept ready with him.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4: Book 55, Chapter 1).

Narrated by Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas: “The Prophet (saw) came visiting me while I was sick in Makkah. I said, “O Allah’s Messenger! May I will all my property (in charity)?” He said, “No.” I said, “Then may I will half of it?” He said, “No.” I said, “One-third?” He said, “Yes, one third, yet even one third is too much. It is better for you to leave your inheritors wealthy than to leave them (poor) begging others, and whatever you spend for Allah’s sake will be considered as a charitable deed, even the handful of food you put in your wife’s mouth…” At the time, Sa’d had only one daughter.

A will is a legal declaration of how you wish to dispose of your property/assets after your death. Islamic wills (also known as Al-Wasaya) are wills that comply with the tenets of the islamic faith, according to the madhab (islamic opinion) that you follow. This means that your property and assets are left with a designated inheritance in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah.

We believe that making a will should not be considered lightly. There are many benefits to having a will prepared by an experienced solicitor including the following;

  • it will save you time and money in the long term;
  • there are complex legal implication that need consideration;
  • there may be matters which you may not have thought of as affecting you;
  • advice about inheritance tax implications of the islamic will.
