Wills and Inheritance Workshops in India

Updated on 12 March 2018

Wills and Inheritance Workshop


The World Federation in India noticed there was a demand to educate our community on Wills and Inheritance as its part of our every-day life yet we haven't fully understand the in's and out of it. 

We held 4 Sessions in different locations and catered to almost 42 people in just one session! 

While wills and inheritance is an important aspect which has been elaborately explained in Islam and also covered in detail in Islamic Laws, there is seldom any detailed discussion on this topic neither in majalis not in madressa. It was observed that there is hardly any awareness in India around these topics.

 

Since people are not aware they make basic mistakes in matters of Inheritance and Wills. Also, many people may have difficulty following the rulings by reading the Islamic Laws book, as it may come across slightly complex. Hence we decided to stand ground and introduced this topic in an interactive workshop format.

 

These workshops were initially aimed for gents only. However, we will have similar workshops available for the ladies soon. 

 

Each session was planned for an average of 4 hours.

 

The workshops were facilitated by Maulana Sayyed Zaki Noori and co-facilitated by Br. Irfan Karim and Br. Asad Virani.

 

All workshops were presentation based and fully interactive by giving all participants a chance to clarify their doubts. Case scenarios were carefully designed and were handed over to the participants to solve in groups. A sample will and inheritance write up were given to all participants at the end of the workshops.
