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.

However below are a series of shorter articles that address specific queries that we know a number of you often ask us. We are constantly adding to this page so it is a work in progress.

When you are ready to proceed to write your Islamic will you can get started and finish within 15 minutes at IFG Wills. This is an online service that offers £98 Islamic wills, with each will reviewed by a qualified solicitor and mufti.

You can also ask us any Islamic wills queries you have through our contact page or our IFG Forum Wills Thread .
