Faraid and Family Welfare

It is essential to remember that Allah s.w.t has decreed the legislation regarding inheritance or faraid. When something is decreed by the Most Knowledgeable, there is surely wisdom in it.

Although faraid stipulates specific shares for heirs, Allah SWT also encourages that any surplus obtained after the distribution should be shared among other family members, including those who are not direct heirs.

Apart from the distribution of inheritance through faraid, there are several estate planning instruments that can be utilized by individuals during their lifetime, such as wills, nomination of gifts, and others.
