OVERVIEW: As a Muslim, do you understand what is Faraid and its relevance to you? Faraid is a concept in Islamic Law, which determines the distribution of a deceased’s property to heirs in portions as set out in Al-Quran, As-Sunnah and Al-’Ijma. Faraid applies to Muslims and it is necessary for Muslims to learn about Faraid to understand the portions of the legal heirs to plan a better inheritance scheme. In this online talk, our speakers explained the basic principles of Faraid and demonstrated how such distribution would be calculated in given scenarios. Our speakers also illustrated the different categories of legal heirs and highlighted scenarios where some legal heirs may be impeded from inheriting a portion of the deceased’s property.
