What is a Last Will and Testament?

A Last Will and Testament (“Will”) is a legal declaration that you, the testator, make. It tells the world who will get your assets and who will manage your estate and implement your wishes when you die. When you die without a will—called dying “intestate”—the state decides who gets your assets with no regard to your wishes and the needs of your heirs.

If you do not want state law to decide who gets your estate, use our ISLAMIC WILL software to prepare your own customized Islamic estate plan that is legally valid for your state.

 

Why do I need a Last Will and Testament?

You need a Will so that:

• You—not a court—decide who get your assets and ensure they are divided according to Islam.

• You—not a court—decide who cares for your children.

• You—not a court—decide who manages the financial affairs of your minor children.

• You—not a court—decide who manages the affairs of your estate.

• You—not a court—decide your burial rites.
