 Maqasid Syariah And The Rules Of Inheritance (Faraid)

The heart of a believer remains obedient to Allah s.w.t. even though there are some commandments of Allah that one’s desires (nafs) and wants are not able to accept.

  

This is because our intellect and desires have to follow the rules and laws prescribed by Allah s.w.t. As a servant of Allah, we firmly believe that all of Allah’s commands and laws will eventually benefit us.

Among the laws set by Allah, which we have to understand the hikmah or wisdom behind it is the laws of inheritance or faraid, which involves the distribution of the wealth of a deceased.
