Islamic Last Will and Testament

Last Will and TestamentDeath is the most certain aspect of life. 6,178 people die in the world every hour, according to the latest statistics. These are people of all ages, dying of all causes. Some of these deaths make headlines, but the great majority do not. Yet, everyone will enter his grave the same way, alone, at the time appointed by God. Even though death happens all the time, we feel that it won't happen to us - at least, not anytime soon. We fail to recognize it as the beginning of another life, a life that will never end, and a life where we will reap what we sowed here. The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Truly smart is the person who controlled his desires and prepared for the life after death."

We never know when Allah will take our lives away from this world. Therefore, prepare ahead of time to leave this world and for our Akhirah. One of the important duties on Muslims is to prepare a Last Will and Testament. If someone lives in a non-Muslim environment, like in the western world, a will must be made ahead of time, with arrangements for your inheritance and burial.

To help you, we provide you with a Last Will and Testament for download. We encourage you to copy, share, and distribute the Will.
