Islamic Law in Texas

Allah's Apostle (PBUH) said “It is not permissible for any Muslim who has something to will to stay for two nights without having his last will and testament written and kept ready with him.” Sahih Bukhari.

There is a duty upon every Muslim to distribute his or her estate in accordance to the Quran. In Texas, if you die without a Will, or if your Will is declared invalid, a court will control and distribute your estate according to Texas Intestacy Laws, a formula contradicting the Quran.

 

Legal debts, Islamic debts, and expenses are settled before any distribution. Next, you have an option to bequeath up to 1/3 of your estate to those not entitled to it. Any assets remaining are distributed according to the Quran.

We understand how ownership rights in personal and real property pass after your death by means of a probated Will, a Revocable Living Trust, or Texas Intestacy Laws. We also know how to protect your family home for your spouse and children after your death. Texas probate laws are strict. Call us today to speak with us about your estate plan. 

Do I need a Will?

If you die without a Will, a court controls your estate and distributes your estate in accordance to a formula contradictory to the Quran. 

Do I need an Attorney?

If your Will does not meet strict Texas guidelines, it is invalid and your estate will be subject to the court. Mistakes undo estate plans.

What if I'm married?

Each spouse needs a Will. Since Texas is a community property state, most assets acquired during marriage belong to both spouses.
