What does the Qur’an say about wills?

In the Qu’ran, Allah directed Muslims to make a will:

It has been ordained upon you, when death is near one of you, leaving wealth behind, to make a will in favor of parents and close relatives, impartially. This is incumbent upon the pious.—Qu’ran 2:180

After deducting any bequests you may bequeath, or any debts.—Qur’an 4:11

When death draws near one of you and it is time to make a bequest.—Qur’an 5:106

If you want your estate to be distributed according to your faith, you must make an Islamic will. Use our ISLAMIC WILL software to make your own customized Islamic will that is legally valid for your state.
