Islamic Wills FAQ

Islamic wills are a must for any Muslim living in the UK. This is because if a Muslim dies without a will, their estate will be distributed according to the laws of intestacy – not Islamic law.

We have previously written the incredibly detailed definitive guide to Islamic wills in the UK. This is still the best place to start. We keep updating this every year to reflect changing law.
