Inheritance: And the 'will'.

Q274 :Inheritance: And the 'will'.


A274 : Islam has a detailed system of inheritance, which specifies shares for each heir. The system caters for all situations and the details of each heir's share is outlined in the Qur'an. The will is the provision which allows a Muslim to leave a portion of his money either for charity or for relatives who are not among his heirs. Perhaps it should be added that the shares of each of the heirs is determined by Allah. No heir can be left an additional amount by will and none maybe disinherited. The system ensures fair distribution of wealth and militates against the concentration of wealth in a few hands.
