Do You Draft Muslim Wills?

L’Avocat Law does not practice Islamic law and does not draft Shariah compliant wills

Do you draft Muslim Wills?

Section 112 of the Administration of Muslim Law Act provides that if a Muslim in Singapore dies without a Will, his assets will be distributed in accordance with Muslim Law.

A Muslim can make a will (wassiyat) to distribute part of his estate and must follow Wills Act.

However, a Muslim can only give away up to one-third of his estate under a Will, after certain deductions have been made.

Unfortunately, we do not practice Islamic law in Singapore and advise Muslim clients to seek advice from law firms who practice Islamic law and to draft their Islam compliant Will.
