What is an Islamic will? An Islamic will is a legally-binding document that specifies the beneficiaries to whom a person's assets (property, possessions, money) will be distributed upon their return to Allah (SWT). It encompasses two categories of individuals: - Ascendants: Including your spouse (husband/wife) and parents. - Descendants: Your children, grandchildren, and siblings (both full siblings and half-siblings). A will can also incorporate bequests for charitable purposes. Meaning of Wasiyyah in Islam Wasiyyah or Wasiya in Islam refers to the declaration made by an individual during their lifetime regarding the distribution of their property and the arrangements to be executed in accordance with Islamic law after their demise. Hence, this concept aligns with a "will" in domestic law. What is the law for wills in Islam? In Islam, a will must be made by the person while they are alive. A will serves the purpose of organizing one's property and assets, ensuring their distribution for the benefit of others or for charitable causes. "It is the duty of a Muslim who has anything to bequeath not to let two nights pass without writing a will about it" (Bukhari). Therefore, the creation of Islamic wills holds great importance within an Islamic framework. How to Create an Islamic Will that is Legal in the UK While it is possible to create a will independently, seeking legal advice from a lawyer is advisable.
