    The wife can defer it till a stipulated date or it can become a debt on the estate when the husband dies. In fact for those Muslims living in the west a will becomes an essential necessity to prevent intestate succession law of the land being applied to their estate after they die. Members of ruling noble or royal houses who are expected to become heirs are called heirs apparent if first in line and incapable of being displaced from inheriting by another claim; otherwise, they are heirs presumptive. There are times when an allotment may seem unfair, these will also be explained. Residual Heirs: Distant Relatives Once the calculations are done for the fixed heirs, the estate may have a remaining balance.

    If a person was poor at the time of his death and his estate cannot bear the expenses of the funeral, the state is responsible to pay from the treasury Bait-ul-maal. It is generally taken to mean the former. The amalgamation of the old customary agnatic law and the Quranic law has led to a number of problems which Muslim jurists have solved with great ingenuity. There is a separate strand of thought that belongs within a discursive tradition of support for the current regimes and governments across Muslim countries, which is also detrimental, destructive and divorced from the Islamic tradition. To deal with this situation, most countries have their own laws of inheritance that apply in the absence of a will of the deceased.

    I shall mention one such case which occurred during the caliphate of Umar ibn Khattab RA. After the first four to five centuries of Islam, the majority position became more restrictive. If there is one daughter and agnatic granddaughters, the daughter inherits one-half share and the agnatic granddaughters inherit the remaining one-sixth, making a total of two-thirds. So I do hope that Muslims will start encouraging everyone to do right by their own families based on their values. They can even get some forms and drafting ideas, which is typical in practice guides. If only a spouse is left behind, then excess should be given to the treasury Bait-ul-maal.

The Quran is a complete guidance for the Muslims. A verse of the Holy Quran listing such obligations mentions wasiyyat before debt. When a person dies, his ownership of his property ends, and is to be given to his heirs. The audience is primarily lawyers who want to help their Muslim clients develop estate plans.

Needless to say nothing in the will should be contrary to Sharia. This means that, for example, if a father left five sons, the firstborn receives a third of the estate and each of the other four receives a sixth. The divine justness and equitability of the Islamic laws of inheritance have been correctly appreciated by many non-Muslim scholars such as Professor Almaric Rumsey of King's College, London, the author of many works on the subject of the Muslim law of inheritance and a barrister-at-law, who stated that the Muslim law of inheritance, "comprises beyond question the most refined and elaborate system of rules for the devolution of property that is known to the civilised world.

By Allah, by Whose permission both the heaven and the earth exist, I will not give any verdict other than that till the Hour is established. Order of Distribution: In Islam, the estate of any person, whether large or small, is distributed in the following order. Under Islamic law some of the Quranic heirs, namely the father, paternal grandfather, daughter, agnatic granddaughter, full sister, consanguine sister and the mother, can also inherit as residuaries under certain circumstances.
