All IEPs must adhere to the company’s code of ethics and are professionally trained not to divulge the client’s information to an unauthorized third party, just like a lawyer and client relationship and that of a doctor and patient. More importantly, Wasiat-writing is the bread and butter of the IEPs, thus, they are highly motivated to protect and sustain that. The only persons who know the contents of the your Wasiat will be the IEP and the dedicated staff of the company. If information is divulged to an unauthorized third party, the company will terminate the contract of the IEP concerned and his name and photo will be advertised to say that he is no longer an IEP, in addition to any possible legal action taken by you.
as-Salihin is a duly registered Trustee Company and, under the law, has perpetual succession. The Wasiats in its custody are all insured. A law firm, however may cease to exist once the sole proprietor or all its partners die. In such a situation, your beneficiaries are not guaranteed a hassle-free time to retrieve your Wasiat. Why take such risks?
Although you may not have much to give away now, writing a Wasiat is more about fulfilling an important aspect of Islam as reflected in the sunnah as narrated by Abdullah bin Umar R.A.
Moreover, over the years your assets may grow and our Wasiat can cover future assets without re-writing it if you do not wish to do so. Besides, if you have minor children, you can also appoint Guardians for their property through a Wasiat.
Lawyers do not provide home services at your own convenience. Many are too busy with appearances in court or have more urgent and rewarding legal matters. Lawyers may not be specialized in Wasiat-writing as it is not their main source of income and they usually have limited number of clients who would write Wasiat. Wasiat Custody is also not offered as part of their services. We, however, are specialist in Wasiat-writing and will give you personalized service at your own convenience in the privacy of your home or office. We also have in-house Wasiat legal advisors and a Board of Syari’ah Advisors to provide further support and check all Wasiats.
Only Muslims may benefit from the inheritance of a Muslim. As your parents are non Muslims, they cannot inherit from you. However, you can give up to 1/3 of your assets to your non-Muslims parents.
In Islam, a deceased’s property inheritable only upon death would have to be distributed in accordance with Faraid. Hence, your sister’s position becomes that of a trustee (and not a beneficiary) and she is duty-bound to divide the property to qualified heirs under Faraid.
No. However, your adoptive parents can give up to 1/3 of their estate or use any other estate planning instruments for your benefit.
