Series: Omer El-Hamdoon – Making a Will
So am I going to lie or have some idea respective brothers and sisters may last pantalla give you a good health and may give you a Baraka in your lives and give you
the the goodness Sharla that you deserve. In this third video in regards to wills,
I wanted to mention some practical points that I hope will benefit everyone.
This video is a third in the series. So in case you haven't watched the other two, please go back and look at them because they are all
together they complement one another
important aspect in terms of the will
allows pantalla mentions the word many times in the Quran. And the Prophet slice I'm also mentions it and we know according to our Islamic practice Indian, but heirs will inherit a fixed portion. However, there is a section where you can leave in your well advice up to a third of your money that you may instruct to go to a certain person or a certain branch or your family then that may not inherit or you might leave it as a charity. And so therefore, it becomes important that your will when you are considering that third, that he does not be in any way unjust and unfair. You have to look at different parties, different people that may be there. You might be looking after certain
orphans that you have sponsored. And maybe you want to leave a legacy in your will for them.
Or maybe you have a cousin, for example, who might not normally inherit, but you want to help them out because you know that their situation is difficult, and so on. So that's your opportunity. And important is to be fair. And just.
Secondly, it's important that the will is also done in a way so that it is clear.
Because as I mentioned in the previous video, we don't want to leave our loved ones any headaches when we leave a will, because we don't want them to having to deal with that. So make it as clear as possible. And thirdly, think about where you're going to keep the will and how it's going to be accessible. And this is a very tricky point. Because sometimes you might have certain things that you want to keep secret
until you pass away.
And therefore How do you keep this information. And I think the best thing to do is
to make sure that you will is written and to give it to somebody that you trust a close friend,
preferably rather than a family member, I would say my recommendation and you know, put it, print it out, sign it, get them to witness it, when it's your signature at least and make it sealed and also therefore keep it with them should anything happen then they can resort to that in Charlottetown.
And at least you know for any reason that your will
your instructions are all there for somebody in sha Allah tala to go back. And to see, those are some practical points that I wanted to clarify.
A lot of the time, we have matters which are not very clear. And it's very important that we do clarify them
in small bits of monies, any items that need to you know, if say you bought a book from somebody, just make sure inside that book, who put a small piece of paper say this book belongs to so and so.
So that can be returned, or I have in my bank account, money belonging to this person, and so on. Items, possessions, etc are important to be documented accurately.
Please do make sure that you do get this done.
Death is always difficult for people to talk about. And some people in fact, can sometimes think that it's almost like a table. They'll say there's a form of Jinx, but we know that Jinx and taboos and suspicions are not part of our Deen
whether you're right or well or you don't right so well whether you think about death or you don't think about death, there is a set appointment for everyone.
So how many people have not written a will
and death comes to them all of a sudden, and how many people have written a will and they live decades with the world there. We don't know when we will die. But be prepared. mail us and accept from us and from you.
