Wills, Estates and Trusts

Develop A Plan and Strategy

what is a shariah will?

A Shariah Will is a legal document created in line with the Islamic Law of Inheritance, which is outlined in the Qur’an and establishes how a Muslim’s inheritance shall be divided upon death.

Is a will compulsory in Islam?

Islamic Wills, Estates, and Trusts are guided by Shariah law (Islamic Law) of inheritance and regulations that are an essential component. Muslims must have a last will and testament to ensure that their estate is distributed in accordance with Shariah Law.

In South Africa, as in other countries, the country’s law and consequences thereof should also be considered when drafting a will, estate plan, or trust.

What is better, Trust or Will?

A living trust becomes active once it is established and funded. Other types of trusts can be established. A trust can protect you and manage your assets in the event of your incapacitation.

A will takes effect after your death
