Islamic Wills with Abacus Wills & Trusts

At Abacus Wills and Trusts, we pride ourselves in being one of the UK’s leaders in writing Islamic Wills (also known as Sharia or Shariah Compliant Wills) for our Muslim clients. Under UK law, the only way to ensure that your estate is distributed according to Sharia, is by having a valid Islamic Will in place.

An Islamic Will is a straightforward and inexpensive document to arrange. However, very few people in the Muslim population have taken this important step, and according to Sharia, one of the most important duties in a Muslim person’s life is to write an Islamic Will. Our Shariah compliant Islamic Will writing specialists ensure that your requirements are documented according to Shariah law.

Many UK Muslims have been through the Nikah ceremony, but have not had a civil marriage and in this situation the widow(er) will not have automatic rights to assets. Instead, the assets will pass to the children (not partner), if there are no children, then to parents, if they are not alive, then to siblings in equal shares. If there are no siblings, then assets will go to other blood relatives. If you have no relatives, your estate passes directly to the Government.

We will ensure that any document we create for you is low cost, competitive and we’ll endeavour to beat any quote from elsewhere, all whilst always maintaining our professional standards.
