Online Will Planner

The Prophet (saw) 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.”  (Sahih Bukhari)

The Islamic Seminary of America is dedicated to cultivating stronger Muslim American communities. One means of strengthening our communities is in helping us fulfill our obligations. As will and estate planning is often a costly and confusing endeavor, especially when trying to find the middle ground between US law and Islamic Sharia, TISA has partnered with  Muslim.Estate to provide a FREE Sharia-compliant online will software that will allow you to create your will, fulfilling this important injunction, from start to finish. Ready to start? Click below. If you’d like more information, please read-on below. 


When a person dies, all of their money, assets, and possessions (known as their “estate”) are distributed in accordance with their wishes. Some people have a will in place. A will is a legal document that specifies who is in charge of carrying out the wishes of the deceased (known as the “executor”) and which persons receive what amounts/possessions of the estate (anyone who gets something is called a “beneficiary”).

In the United States, if a person does not have a will in place, then the estate is divided and distributed by the courts based on US inheritance law. Needless to say, US inheritance laws are not the same as the ones that Muslim are obligated to follow. Muslims must create Islamic wills. These vary from standard wills in the way that the estate is divided. Islamic law specifies the percentage/share of inheritance for each family member. The Quran serves as the primary source of Islamic inheritance laws, outlining guidelines that ensure a just distribution among the family members.
