What happens if I pass away without a will?

When a person passes without a Will, or dies “Intestate” as the law calls it, the property of the deceased is distributed according to a formula fixed by law. In other words, if you do not have a Will, you do not have anything to base on as to how your estates are distributed.

An ” Estate” applies not just to real estate, but any cash in a bank accounts, cars, furniture, books, gratuity, death in service benefits, bonds, jewellery, family heirlooms, works of art… any property anything at all owned by you. Usually when an expatriate passes away, the bank accounts (Single & joint) are blocked immediately to freeze all transaction(s) on the accounts of the deceased. Unfreezing of the account (s) can only be carried out by the local Court. This process safeguard’s any payments that needs to be made after an expatriate has passed away such as outstanding loans and any debt payments.

Your registered “Last Will & Testament” is a document that details exactly what you would like to happen to your estate in the event of your death. The document can cover all aspects of your life, from physical assets such as property, investments or cash to Appointment of Guardians both Temporary & Permanent. In the absence of an attested Will, the local Laws will apply to the distribution of your estate which may not agree to your wishes and the Islamic Law!.

  1. Very Crucial for every Muslim.


    Alhamdullillaah! I am indeed increased in knowledge by knowing what I didn’t know. This course is obviously important for every Muslim. Being a young Muslim in the 20s, I have understood how to plan my future with my wife better Inshaa’Allah. One definitely needs a will before He or she’s time is up, because no one escapes death. It was a wonderful course! Jazaakallaah Khair!!! May Allah improve the institution in inspiring many students to take its courses just like how IOU has done, benefit from them in here and the hereafter. Ameen.
