What should I know before creating Islamic Wills?

Islamic Will has limitations, especially if you live and assets are located in non-Muslim majority countries, because it does not cover a chunk of assets, for example, assets under Joint tenancy, Joint tenants, or the assets on which beneficiaries are designated. Assets do not cover means it would bypass Islamic law and pose a risk of sharia compliance. So, in some cases, creating Islamic Will would not affect anything. Wassiyyah offers solutions to these issues for making your Will without losing sharia compliance. Also, the most available free Islamic Wills template mentions, "Distribute my all assets as per Islamic inheritance law," which is inadequate, especially for the countries where the legal laws are not Islamic. Your Islamic Will may become null or invalid when it goes to probate court because the non-Muslim judiciary can not interpret the rules of shariah regarding inheritance in one sentence. The reality reveals once your Islamic Will goes to court but not prior. You cannot ensure or realize in your lifetime whether your Will is valid or not. To solve this issue, Wassiyyah offers Islamic Will that includes the Islamic inheritance distribution rhetoric to reveal the principles that are descriptive and interpretable if needed. The principles we incorporate in Islamic Will are approved by highly qualified (Doctorate/Ph.D.) Muftis.
