Women Muslim Heirs need not lose out

April 4, 2010


The complicated laws under the Syariah court often contradicts with the law. In Islam, it is the male member's responsibility to take care of the female members like his wife, daughters, mother, sisters and aunts, hence the male is entitled to two portions of the female's share.


In some cases where the deceased intended to have his female beneficiaries have equal or more share than male beneficiaries, his wishes can be carried out if all of his heirs agree to it. One crucial point is that the agreement from the heirs must come after the person's death. It is not enough to have them agree - even in writing - before the person's death.
