Islamic Inheritance Laws
The historical system of inheritance was based on the maintenance of ‘wealth’ within the family. Male inheritors would be given preference and children did not have a share. Even amongst the male relatives of the deceased there were rules of priority. Today, our social norms determine distribution, for instance if a woman dies her assets such as jewelry are distributed amongst her daughters or ‘daughter in law’ or granddaughter. In some countries, the existing rule of law applies to inheritance, where the written will of the deceased determines the distribution of his wealth. This could be to anyone and any organization. The above is not in line with the Inheritance Laws of Islam. This area has been addressed precisely and eloquently in the “Quran” and “Ahadith”. This book will help you understand the basics of the Islamic Inheritance Laws and provide you with guidance to carry out proper distribution of wealth of a deceased.
