A lack of awareness about the importance of the details of administration about property, on the death of its Muslim owner, may give rise to disputes amongst the family members if the owner dies without leaving any wasiyyah or any other Islamic instruments to distribute their property.
The importance of planning is to ensure that the properties of the deceased go to the intended parties, and to avoid conflict amongst them. To achieve this, it is imperative that the management of the property is in accordance with the law / syarak. The mechanisms under Islamic Law for the administration and management of such properties include the ability of the property owner, during his / her lifetime, to distribute the properties to the intended beneficiaries or to an administrator either by way of hibah, by will, gifts, wasiyyah or waqf.
On the death of the property owner, there are certain responsibilities that have to be fulfilled before the property can be distributed such as dealing with the funeral expenses, settling the debts of the deceased, amongst others.
The focus of this interactive forum is to raise awareness about the details of property management and administration from an Islamic perspective, and will serve as a guide to legal practitioners in this field. Participants will be encouraged to use this as an opportunity to consult with the trainer about specific situations they are dealing with or may have dealt with.
Eligibility: must be a legal practitioner who has experience in this area as the objective of this forum is to finetune the knowledge and application of the relevant law. Newcomers to this area of law are encouraged to attend CPD Camps instead.
