6 reasons to get an Islamic will in New Jersey

Updated: Dec 28, 2023

First, What is a will?

An Islamic will, or a Sharia-compliant will, is a legal document that enables a Muslim to clearly state to whom he or she will leave his or her assets, which are inclusive of property, money and possessions. These assets are distributed to your Islamic heirs as per the Islamic law of inheritance.

Why you should have a will written by an Islamic estate attorney

Having an Islamic wasiyyah or Sharia-compliant will is beneficial in many ways:

  1. An Islamic will and testament enables you to distribute your assets according to the Islamic inheritance laws.

  2. Through an Islamic will you can leave specific gifts following Islamic heirship rules.

  3. You can specify your Islamic burial arrangements to reduce stress for your family in the future as well as plan out guardianship of minor children in Islam.

  4. With Islamic wills, you can leave a sadaqah jariyyah (charitable gift) according to the laws of Islamic philanthropy in wills.

  5. You will be able to take care of your Ḥuqūq Allāh, including zakat and hajj through your Islamic will.

  6. You can build Islamic generational wealth through Islamic family legacy planning.
