Faraidh deals with the distribution of the estate of a deceased person among his/her heirs under Allah’s (God) decree in the Holy Quran and according to the hadith or tradition of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

Nuzriah is a form of a vow. Commonly, one stipulates by way of writing that the estate or a part of the estate is passed on to the selected beneficiary three days or 3 hours before the death of the testator. It seems to have been brought into Singapore by Yemeni traders, and MUIS has provided some materials on its validity. However, in a 2004 High Court Case, the Court did not recognise the Nuzriah which was drafted in that case. It is important to note that not all the scholars are in agreement about the validity of Nuzriah.

You will have to go to the Civil Courts, but they will apply Islamic Law as far as possible and within the confines of AMLA and other Acts of Law and cases.

Estate is the term used to describe the total net assets of a person who has deceased.

 

For example, if Person A when alive has

S$1,000.00 in his bank
a HDB Flat
a Car
a expensive watch
a loan borrowed from a bank (negative value)
a loan lent to someone (positive value)

 

If person A passes away, the items listed above will form Person A's estate.

Upon the death of the deceased, you should apply to Court for a grant of probate (if there is a Will) or letter of administration (if there is no Will). We will advise you accordingly.

No, the Intestate Succession Act does not apply to Muslims. A Muslim's estate will be distributed under Syariah Law in Singapore.

When a person passes away the following will be deducted from his/her estate:

  • Gifts made while he/she was alive
  • Jointly owned matrimonial property
  • any promises made to Allah where he/she had vowed to give
  • Funeral and other expenses related to the person's death.
  • Debts owed to others.
  • Outstanding debts owed to the Government.
