An Islamic will covers everything that a secular will covers, including:
- Appointing an executor to distribute your estate and manage your affairs after death;
- Appointing a guardian to care for your children and manage their inheritance until adulthood;
- Leaving money and/or property from your estate to other relatives or to charitable organizations; and
- Specifying any debts to be paid at your death.
However, unlike a secular will, an Islamic will also includes Shari'a-complaint solutions to managing your estate after death, including:
- Telling the world you have selected your burial rites according to Islam;
- Outlining your wishes regarding autopsy that are permissible under the Shari'a;
- Specifying moral and religious obligations to be paid at your death;
- Providing permissible, recommended, and obligatory bequests up to one-third of the estate in the aggregate; and, most importantly
- Dividing your assets according to Shari'a inheritance rules.
