Shariah Estate & Financial Planning Seminar

We now live in a complex world where financial products like insurance/ takaful, intellectual rights, usufructs, waqf, property and other listed and non listed investments abound. Many of these products have serious shariah implications which may affect beneficiaries and dependents… either during the lifetime or at death of the asset holder.

Some of beneficiaries / dependents may or may not have Quranic rights upon the death of the testator, and others may have other financial rights over the estate, such as creditors who may even be Quranic heirs.
Shariah Estate & Financial Planning is becoming more and more essential and critical in the lives of Muslims who wish to ensure that their estates and wills are well planned to cater for all eventualities.
The Shariah Estate & Financial Planning Seminar will bring together a host of experts to discuss various aspects of Estate and Financial planning from an Islamic perspective taking into account the realities that face Muslims today.
Many dependents, beneficiaries, and creditors may not be adequately catered for.

Are parents secure? Are spouses secure? Are minor children secure? Are near relatives taken care of? Are non heirs and destitute in the family taken care of? Has provision been made for a waqf? Has provision been made for immediate cash upon the demise of the breadwinner of the family?
These and many other issues will be discussed.

  • To equip participants with knowledge and skills regarding their estates and wills.
