IWC are fully qualified in the professional writing of Sharia Law wills. We can create an Islamic Will that is recognised by the English Legal system, essential for Muslims who own assets and live in the UK. If you do not write a Will and you pass away, your assets will pass according to the UK rules of intestacy. These laws are vastly different to the laws of your faith.

'It is the duty of a Muslim who has anything to bequeath no to let 2 nights pass without writing a will.' - Ibn Umar, contained in Muwatta.
IWC understand the significance of making an Islamic Will. It is imperative for those who reside in the UK to make a Sharia Law will. The rules of inheritance in Islamic Law are hugely different to English Law. If you die without a Sharia will, your assets and belongings will be distributed according to the English intestacy rules and not the Islamic Law of Inheritance. This means, your assets may be bequeathed to those who are not entitled under Islamic Law.
Wills ensure that your estate (after funeral expenses and outstanding debts) will pass to entitled heirs according to Sharia Law.
Make a will to ensure that your burial takes place according to Islamic rituals.
Make sure your obligations are fulfilled upon your death, for example charity (Zakat) unpaid during your lifetime.
You can appoint Guardians for children under the age of 18.
You may wish to leave a proportion to a non-relative.
Bequeath money to a charity or Islamic institution and derive successive benefit from this when you die.
If you`re resident in the UK it is advisable to get expert will writing advice with regards to inheritance tax implications also. In effect, you`re trying to reconcile the jurisdiction of two very different succession systems. For example, according to Sharia Law a wife cannot inherit all of her husband`s estate. However, as a British citizen, it is advantageous to bequeath the entire estate to a spouse because it would then be exempt from 40% inheritance tax.
