Allah Almighty states in the Holy Quran,
كُتِبَ عَلَيكُم إِذا حَضَرَ أَحَدَكُمُ المَوتُ إِن تَرَكَ خَيرًا الوَصِيَّةُ لِلوالِدَينِ وَالأَقرَبينَ بِالمَعروفِ ۖ حَقًّا عَلَى المُتَّقينَ
Prescribed for you, when death approaches any of you and he/she leaves behind any property, is that he/she make a bequest for his/her parents and relatives, in an honourable manner, a duty upon the righteous.
- It is obligatory upon every Muslim to complete an updated will that stipulates the agreed division of assets for the immediate family and loved ones before he or she leaves this world.
- Islamic wills are meant to document a Muslim’s last wishes with regards to the children and distribution of assets.
- Wills are essential in Islam to prevent conflicts between the people you leave behind, as it allows you to make some important decisions before your final farewell. Failure to document a will could leave the distribution of your assets in the hands of judges and state officials.
- We offer the opportunity to create an Islamic will in conformity with the guidelines of Islamic and Australian law. Individuals can create their own wills but must have the document signed in the presence of a witness to prevent future challenges to your decisions.
- We can also have an online recorded will in addition to the written document.
- If you would like an Islamic will, or need a help putting one together, please contact the Sheikh below and book an appointment for advice and guidance.
