Scholars of Islam, As-Salamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. Is it permissible for a Muslim to make a will for his heirs, say, for example, his wife or children, to make them beneficiaries to his pension after death? Someone told me that making such a will for one's heirs is impermissible in Islam, but there is a Qur'anic verse (Al-Baqarah: 180) stating the opposite.The reason for posing this question is to know whether a devoted wife whose entire life is dedicated for the interest of her family (her husband and kids) could be given a right to receive some sort of monthly income after one's death, to sustain herself and the kids. Please, clarify this for me. Jazakum Allah Khayran.
As-Salaamu Alykum,I have a question about inheritance. I thought it was simple but upon looking into it, there seems to be more layers that I'm not aware of. First, I have only 1 parent (my mother), 2 brothers (1 full-brother and 1 half-brother). Lastly, I also have a living grand-father (father of my father) who lives with relatives in another part of town. I also have numerous uncles, cousins, and nieces (which I don't think are applicable here). SO what is the proper Islamic breakdown of my inheritance?May Allah reward You.
Respected scholars of Islam, As-Salaam `Alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. What is the situation of Muslims living in Western countries with non-Muslim parents (i.e., mainly converts) regarding the question of inheritance.Are the properties transferred to them according to the Western laws at the death of their parents Halal (lawful) for them or not? Jazakum Allah Khayran.
