Navigating Muslim Inheritance: a guide to Faraid

In the event of the passing of a Muslim individual domiciled in Singapore, the management and distribution of their estate are guided by Islamic Inheritance Law, commonly referred to as "Faraid." This framework is established under the Administration of Muslim Law Act and is administered by the Syariah Court. Faraid addresses the equitable distribution of a deceased person's estate among their rightful heirs.

Understanding the Inheritance Certificate

The Inheritance Certificate serves as a vital document outlining the entitlements of the estate's beneficiaries in accordance with Faraid. Only the Syariah Court possesses the jurisdiction to issue an Inheritance Certificate, which details the beneficiaries' respective shares. This certificate relies on information provided by the applicants, typically the estate's beneficiaries. It is a prerequisite for commencing any application for a Grant of Letters of Administration or a Grant of Probate.

No Will? No Problem.

In cases where the deceased did not leave behind a Will, the administrator—typically the next-of-kin and beneficiaries of the estate—must apply for a Grant of Letters of Administration. Subsequently, they will distribute the estate in accordance with the Inheritance Certificate. It's essential to note that jointly owned property, joint bank accounts, nominated CPF monies, and nominated Insurance policies do not fall under the purview of Faraid.

When a Will Is Present

In the presence of a Will left by the deceased, the named executors and trustees must initiate the process by applying for a Grant of Probate. They will then administer the estate in accordance with the deceased's wishes, as stipulated in the Will. However, it's important to understand that the deceased can only Will up to one-third of their estate. Additionally, any attempts to provide extra benefits or assets to Faraid beneficiaries within the Will are considered invalid unless all other Faraid beneficiaries consent to its validity. Such agreement can only be established following the deceased's passing.
