Wasiat & Hibbah

All Muslims in Singapore are subject to Syariah law when it comes to matters of their estate. Muslims are encouraged to prepare and leave behind a wasiat for the ones they leave behind after they depart.

In order to get a wasiat prepared, you have to fulfill the following the following requirements:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Be of sound mental capacity in the eyes of the law
  • Have at least two witnesses who are NOT beneficiaries of your wasiat

In general, preparation of a Wasiat is more complex than a will subject to civil law, such as the fact that your wasiat cannot amount to more than one-third of your estate.

Please contact us for a consult to learn more about how we can assist you.

Faraid (Syariah Inheritance Law)

When a Muslim in Singapore passes away, their estate is generally subject to Faraid, which is Muslim intestate law (inheritance law).

In most cases, the spouse and immediate family will inherit most of the estate, and males tend to get double the amount of females (a brother will get twice as much as a sister).

If the deceased has prepared a Wasiat, this will be taken into consideration by the Syariah Court when administering the estate.

We provide a personalized consultation for all Muslim clients who require more information about Faraid matters.

Our Syariah Lawyers have extensive experience in all Muslim inheritance matters, and if you’re looking for honest, trustworthy legal representation, feel free to contact us for a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements for Syariah Divorce?

For muslim divorce in Singapore, there are various methods used, depending on whether the husband or the wife is seeking the divorce in the Syariah courts.

Please consult a lawyer for a more detailed explanation.

Cerai Talak

In Islam, the husband is primarily given an immediate right to divorce. There are some conditions which the husband should abide by:

  • Two witnesses should be present
  • A man should not divorce his wife when she is on her menstruation
  • Divorces should not be pronounced when the wife is pregnant the man’s child

In Cerai talak, the man is not required to prove any grounds for divorce, and can be effected simply because the man wishes to be separated from his wife. Upon the husband’s pronunciation of “Talak”, the parties can legally file for divorce at the Syariah Court.

Once “Talak” has been pronounced, generally both husband and wife have to appear in Court for Syariah Divorce proceedings.

As of 22 October 2018, the husband can apply to the Syariah court for a divorce without pronouncing talak.

Cerai Talak

For muslim women seeking divorce, they are required to prove a minimum of one of the following:

  • Khuluk;
  • Cerai taklik (Breach of taklik); or
  • Fasakh.

Khuluk

By agreeing to a khuluk, which is the wife’s right to seek divorce from her husband due to a variety of factors, the “talak” is instead requested by the wife, and is typically granted by the husband upon receiving some monetary compensation from the wife, the amount of which is generally assessed by the courts.

In this process, the talak is requested by the wife and is granted by the husband upon the wife’s paying him a sum of money or an amount in kind (compensation/redemption). The quantum of which is assessed by the Court in accordance with the status and means of the parties.

Get Your Grant Of Probate or LOA With Peace Of Mind

“Done For You” Grant Of Probate Services

The last thing you want when a loved one passes away is to worry about administrative matters such as unfreezing your loved one’s bank account, and other estate matters.

We will assist in helping to facilitate matters when your loved one passes on.

When your loved one passes on, our team of experienced estate lawyers will help you to take care of your family’s legal estate matters. A grant of probate or letter of administration is needed by the survivors to have the power and authority to administer the deceased’s estate.

Grant Of Probate

If there is a valid will, you would submit a grant of probate, allowing the executor named in the will to distribute assets in accordance with the will.

Letters Of Administration

When your loved one passes away without leaving behind a valid will, the next of kin can make a court application for the grant of letters of administration. These letters of administration serve as a court order authorising a person to be appointed as the administrator, enabling them to administer the estate and distribute the assets in accordance with Singapore’s estate laws.
