I do not have any Islamic heirs. Can I leave my estate to a friend or non-Islamic heir family member?

If you do not have any surviving Islamic heirs, many Muslim scholars in the United States have advised that leaving a bequest to a Muslim charity and leaving the balance of your estate to a non-Islamic heir family member or friend would be acceptable under these circumstances.

You can make your Islamic estate plan using our ISLAMIC WILL software and leave a bequest to your favorite Islamic charity, and because you do not have any surviving Islamic heirs, you are free to leave the balance of your estate to the beneficiary of your choice.
