ABOUT MUSLIM WILL

We are a trusted Canadian Islamic will service that calculates a division of your estate and generates a comprehensive accredited will, compliant with Islamic law. We believe that every Muslim should be able to create a will, at an affordable price, that does not conflict with their Islamic obligations.

MuslimWill.ca  was founded on the principle that Muslims living in Canada shouldn’t have to worry about drafting their final will and testament, in accordance with Islamic Laws. It is designed to help Muslims in Canada create their will in a manner that is both easily accessible and reliable.

Our primary goal is to ensure that every Muslim manages his testamentary affairs, including who to pass on their estate to, as well as who to appoint as guardian or custodian for their children, in a manner that does not conflict with their religious beliefs.

FAQ

Do I need a Will?

Making a Will ensures that your family is cared for and looked after past your death. If you die without a Will, the government will distribute your estate according to their own rules and standards, which could result in a temporary freeze of your assets. This means that your family won’t have immediate access to your estate, leaving those who are dependent on you with no financial security as a result. This process can also be a lengthy, expensive procedure for your family members.

You may also want to consider adding extended family members to your Will since they do not automatically receive a share of a deceased person’s estate. If you don’t write a Will however, your extended family members aren’t guaranteed to inherit anything. It’s also important to assign a guardian for your minor children in your Will in case both parents face an unexpected death.

In conclusion, everyone needs a Will, so start your Will today.

What happens if I die without a Will?

Dying without a Will is considered an intestate death, meaning that you did not leave any instructions as to how your estate should be distributed upon your death. When this happens in Ontario, your assets are distributed according to the Succession Law Reform Act. However, even if you don’t mind that your assets could be managed by the government, you should still consider making a Will in order to avoid the lengthy and complex procedures that accompany an intestate death.

Some challenges associated with an intestate death include:

  1. No control over who inherits what since the government is in control of the deceased person’s assets.
  2. Lengthy time delays and expenses.
  3. The court will have to find someone to appoint as your personal representative to look after your estate. Usually, it’s the deceased person’s closest family member who fills this role. However, this still doesn’t mean that the government will select the person you want to take care of your children and manage your money and property responsibly.

Why should I write an Islamic Will / Wasiyyah?

There are many evidence in the Quran and Sunnah, showing the importance of Islamic Will/Wassiyah.

The Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him) ordered all Muslims to prepare a Last Will & Testament. Abdullah bin ‘Umar narrated that the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said, “It is not permissible for any Muslim who has something to will to stay for two nights without having his Will and Testament written and kept ready with him.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari).

﴿ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذَا حَضَرَ أَحَدَكُمُ الْمَوْتُ إِنْ تَرَكَ خَيْراً الْوَصِيَّةُ لِلْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ حَقّاً عَلَى الْمُتَّقِينَ﴾ (180)

( سورة البقرة ) – 180. It is prescribed for you, when death approaches any of you, if he leaves wealth, that he makes a bequest to parents and next of kin, according to reasonable manners. (This is) a duty upon Al-Muttaqin (the pious).

﴿ يُوصِيكُمُ اللَّهُ فِي أَوْلَادِكُمْ لِلذَّكَرِ مِثْلُ حَظِّ الْأُنْثَيَيْنِ فَإِنْ كُنَّ نِسَاءً فَوْقَ اثْنَتَيْنِ فَلَهُنَّ ثُلُثَا مَا تَرَكَ وَإِنْ كَانَتْ وَاحِدَةً فَلَهَا النِّصْفُ وَلِأَبَوَيْهِ لِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمَا السُّدُسُ مِمَّا تَرَكَ إِنْ كَانَ لَهُ وَلَدٌ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلَدٌ وَوَرِثَهُ أَبَوَاهُ فَلِأُمِّهِ الثُّلُثُ فَإِنْ كَانَ لَهُ إِخْوَةٌ فَلِأُمِّهِ السُّدُسُ مِنْ بَعْدِ وَصِيَّةٍ يُوصِي بِهَا أَوْ دَيْنٍ آَبَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَاؤُكُمْ لَا تَدْرُونَ أَيُّهُمْ أَقْرَبُ لَكُمْ نَفْعاً فَرِيضَةً مِنَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً (11)﴾

( سورة النساء )

﴿ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا شَهَادَةُ بَيْنِكُمْ إِذَا حَضَرَ أَحَدَكُمُ الْمَوْتُ حِينَ الْوَصِيَّةِ اثْنَانِ ذَوَا عَدْلٍ مِنْكُمْ أَوْ آَخَرَانِ مِنْ غَيْرِكُمْ إِنْ أَنْتُمْ ضَرَبْتُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَأَصَابَتْكُمْ مُصِيبَةُ الْمَوْتِ تَحْبِسُونَهُمَا مِنْ بَعْدِ الصَّلَاةِ فَيُقْسِمَانِ بِاللَّهِ إِنِ ارْتَبْتُمْ لَا نَشْتَرِي بِهِ ثَمَناً وَلَوْ كَانَ ذَا قُرْبَى وَلَا نَكْتُمُ شَهَادَةَ اللَّهِ إِنَّا إِذاً لَمِنَ الْآَثِمِينَ (106)﴾

( سورة المائدة )

وروى البخاري ومسلم: (( عَنْ عَبْدِاللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ رَضِي اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: مَا حَقُّ امْرِئٍ مُسْلِمٍ لَهُ شَيْءٌ يُوصِي فِيهِ يَبِيتُ لَيْلَتَيْنِ إِلا وَوَصِيَّتُهُ مَكْتُوبَةٌ عِنْدَهُ ))

“It is the duty of a Muslim who has anything to bequest not to let two nights pass without writing a will about it.”Sahih Al-Bukhari

(( عَنْ سَالِمٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: مَا حَقُّ امْرِئٍ مُسْلِمٍ لَهُ شَيْءٌ يُوصِي فِيهِ يَبِيتُ ثَلاثَ لَيَالٍ إِلا وَوَصِيَّتُهُ عِنْدَهُ مَكْتُوبَةٌ، قَالَ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عُمَرَ مَا مَرَّتْ عَلَيَّ لَيْلَةٌ مُنْذُ سَمِعْت رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ ذَلِكَ إِلا وَعِنْدِي وَصِيَّتِي ))

Importance of Islamic Will/Wassiyah:

To fulfill your duty to god

If you die intestate, i.e., without a Will, your estate is distributed according to the government’s laws and not in accordance with Islamic law.

To gain personal peace

 Writing a Will eliminates potential unnecessary complications that could occur otherwise. If your children are under 18 and you have not appointed a legal guardian for them, the court will take it upon themselves to do so. Therefore, writing a Will ensures that your children’s future safety is in your hands.

To achieve financial security

 -Making a Will online is fast, simple and relatively low-cost.

-Tax-efficient: Minimizes the amount of inheritance tax your family might pay on the deceased person’s estate.

-In case someone dies intestate, a friend or family member will have to apply through the court to administer the deceased person’s estate, which is a lengthier and much more expensive process than writing a Will.

To give back and make an impact

 Making a bequest does not only help those who receive it but it helps you as well as it’s considered a sadaqa jariya (continuous charity)—a special deed that continues to benefit you after death.
