Estate planning for Muslims involves property and asset distribution through wasiat or hibah and faraid in compliance with Syariah Law and its principles.

It often involves the preparation of a wasiat with an understanding of faraid. A wasiat is a promise by a person on his/her property or to complete a benefit for charity or any other reason that is allowed by Syara’ (Islamic Law) which is to take effect upon his/her death. Faraid is a concept in Islamic Law, which determines the distribution of a deceased’s property to heirs in portions mentioned in Al-Quran.

We assist our Muslim clients to plan the distribution of estate during their lifetime and upon death under Syariah Law and its principles. Our Syariah Estate Planning team will advise and assist you with planning to achieve effective outcomes.
