"It is the duty of a Muslim who has anything to bequeath not to let two nights pass without writing a will about it" - Sahih al- Bukhari
Under the Sharia, a Muslin with wealth is duty- bound to write a Will. In order to fulfil this religious obligation, Muslims need to ensure they have executed a Sharia- complaint will, not simply a secular Will. This can be a complex process which is why the knowledge and expertise offered by our solicitors is invaluable. Our highly experienced Wills team can help you draft a Sharia compliant Will, providing the assistance you need to make sure everything is completed correctly.
Our Wills are compliant with Islamic law as well as the laws of England and Wales.
The Quaran stresses the importance of creating an Islamic will. Our specialist legal team will be happy to talk you through the Islamic laws of inheritance and can guide you through the process of writing a sound, legally binding Islamic will.
Islamic Wills start from £200 upwards depending on the size of the estate and your instructions, plus disbursements. Following the initial 30 minute free consultation the solicitor will provide you with a cost for all the work specific to your circumstances.
As Sharia law provides for very strict guidelines when making a Will, without a proper will and advice, this can lead to unexpected inheritance tax charges for those inheriting. Because of these new rules, there are also other restrictions on how couples may hold property and other assets together, including their home.
