  • Will Made In Favour Of Needy Daughters

    Posted by Fatimah on May 12, 2022 at 3:13 pm

    I understand the reasons behind shariah ruling of wealth distribution of an individual to the children but if a case is different or complicated then is it mandatory to follow this rule?

    What if daughters are not married off and there’s no chance of them marrying and the only son is wealthy enough that it won’t matter. Can the distribution of wealth be based upon need and Financial situation of daughters and sons?

    TIA

    The law of inheritance comes to effect after bequest of the deceased whatever it is.

    مِن بَعْدِ وَصِيَّةٍ يُوصِي بِهَا أَوْ دَيْنٍ

    after [the deduction of] any bequest he may have made, or any debt [he may have incurred]

    The deceased can give all his or her wealth or a portion of it, to his heirs or any of them in any proportion keeping in view their needs, with a sense of justice and satisfaction of conscience.

    Majority of the scholars are of the opinion that only 1/3rd of the wealth can be given made a bequest about and it should not be in the favour of the legal heirs. but the words of Quran do not accept these specifications. The notion of bequest of 1/3rd of the wealth came from a hadith in which the prophet suggest for Saad bin Abi Waqas to give away one third of his wealth as he was willing to give all his money in charity. This suggestion to a companion does not make a legal statement.
