Execute your Shariah Compliant Will
When a Muslim passes away, his or her estate must be administered and distributed according to the Islamic Laws of Inheritance. However, should you die without a will in South Africa, your estate would be distributed according to the South African laws of inheritance, which is not Islamic. This is what you should avoid at all costs, and of course, while you are alive. It is therefore of utmost importance that you draft and execute a valid shariah compliant will before your death. If you do not have one, let us be of assistance. To purchase your Shariah Complaint Will Product for R 950 – 00, click here.

Clauses we include in your will
The following, or similar clauses would be included in your Will:
“I am a Muslim and subscribe to the Principles of Islam;
Therefore, at my death, it is of utmost importance that my entire estate be wound up, distributed, and administered as provided in terms of Islamic Law;
Therefore, whatever Islam says should take place at my death regarding my estate, being it monies, assets, zakah, debts (religious or otherwise), how and when my heirs should receive their inheritance etc.; that must be given effect to;
Without departing from the generality of the aforementioned clauses, if there are any religious debts that should be paid by my estate, owing at my death, that should be attended to in terms of Islamic Law, and all heirs of mine who should inherit in terms of Islamic law at my death should inherit, and in the manner and time as prescribed in Islamic Law;
Therefore, if any clause in this Will, the effect of it would not be in terms of Islamic law, then I request that that clause not be given effect to, or be given effect to, to the extend allowed in terms of Islamic laws, still keeping with my wish that Islamic law shall not be tainted with;
It is therefore the duty and obligation of my Executor and / or the person(s) who winds up my estate to ensure that my affairs are dealt with as Islamic law prescribes. Therefore, by way of example, if my estate at my death has to pay a religious debt, then that debt should be paid as provided for in terms of Islamic law; and
If there is conflict between Islamic law of inheritance and that of South African law, or the law of the land which applies when giving effect to this Will, then I request that Islamic law prevails, and if this is not possible, then that Islamic law should be given effect to, to the highest level.”
We shall also include other appropriate clauses into your Will.
