If one of you facing death can leave a legacy, he should bequeath it to his parents and relatives, according to the law. This is the duty of the pious. [The Holy Quran, 2:180] Having one’s affairs in order is a religious responsibility and brings peace of mind to the testator and their family. In 2010, the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America issued a concise form to be used by believers in preparing their will, particularly in matters of Islamic responsibilities (i.e. kaffarah, fasting, and so forth). For information on obtaining an Islamic Will, in Arabic or English, use the links below.
