As Muslims, your assets after you pass on will be distributed amongst your heirs in accordance to Faraid (Islamic Inheritance Law). What about those who are not regarded as heirs in Islam? This is where Wasiat comes in, it enables you to distribute one-third of your assets to non-Faraid heirs be they Muslims or non-Muslims or even to charity.

What is a Wasiat?

Wasiat is a vow or declaration that you make during your lifetime with respect to your property or benefit thereof, to be carried out for the purpose of charity or for any other purpose permissible by Islamic Law after your demise. The making of a Wasiat is recommended by Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.

Narrated from Ibn 'Umar R.A.: Rasulullah S.A.W. said: "It is not permissible for any Muslim who has something to will to stay for two nights without having his last will and testament written and kept ready with him."
