Q&As

[35:48] How do we solve when the family home needs to be dissolved and needs to be distributed to it’s beneficiaries – this can result in the occupants being left homeless
[39:22] Can one sibling be entitled to greater share of the estate if they have had previous involvement with the businesses within the estate? Involvement being limited to overseeing business
[40:40] How to balance islamic inheritance with UK 40% inheritance tax? eg: In UK, if assets are passed to a spouse there is no tax to pay. But under Islamic inheritance the spouse does not receive all.
[42:34] On the subject of court cases, if the owner of the estate drafted a will heavily in favour of one beneficiary but under duress what would need to happen in this situation?
[43:43] If one puts a non Islamic request in their will e.g. a bequest to an inheritor or more than 1/3. Is it better to say it’s invalid or to ask the inheritors if they all agree as it affects their share?
[44:54] What does “looking after” the female mean? ie if the sisters are unmarried but have their own houses, jobs etc… what does the brother have to do with his inheritance with respect to them?
