Islamic Will Template (Trinidad and Tobago).

Writing and preparing a Will is undoubtedly very important, especially in non-Muslim countries, insuring that upon death, one’s wealth and assets are distributed according to Shariah.

The Prophet ﷺ said: “It is not befitting for a Muslim who has something to make a Will of, to remain for two nights without having one’s last Will and testament written and kept ready with one.”

The narrator of this Hadith (Abd Allah ibn Umar ibn al-Khattab) stated after hearing this

“I did not let even one night pass by except that my Will would be kept by me.”

Making a Will becomes even more important in non-Muslim countries. The reason being is that, failing to leave a valid written Will can result in the law of the land deciding on how your estate is to be distributed, which obviously will not be in accordance with Shariah (Islamic law). Writing a Will is not only for old people, rather all those who have reached puberty should quickly get their Will prepared, for there is no guarantee of when one will die.
