As Muslims, we spend our lives working hard to provide a halal income for our families. We plan for everything, but most of us forget to plan for the one certainty of life — that none of us will remain here forever.
At Yaser Ali Law we specialize in helping you ensure that you protect those closest to you in the event of your death or incapacity, leave a legacy for your community, and ensure that your assets pass to your loved ones in accordance with the Islamic law of Inheritance as laid out in the Quran and Sunnah. In particular, our Islamic estate planning experts can help you answer the following questions:
- If I’m living away from my family and get sick or injured, who has the authority to make important medical and financial decisions for me?
- Who gets custody of my children if something happens to me and my spouse?
- How can I make sure that I’m given a proper Islamic janazah and burial when I pass away?
- What happens to all of my assets after I die? How can I ensure that I comply with the Islamic Rules of Inheritance and provide for my family after death?
Our managing attorney, Yaser Ali, is trained in classical Islamic Inheritance law, co-authored the American Bar Association’s Practice Guide to Estate Planning for Muslim Clients, and has delivered several presentations on this topic around at Masajid around the country including the Islamic Center of Irving, the Muslim Community Center of the East Bay, Islamic Center of Little Rock which you can view below.
