Can I bequeath to an Islamic Heir?

faq-top-bg

No, bequests are only for non-Heirs. If a bequest is made in favour of an Heir, this would provide an unfair advantage to one Heir over another. The other Heirs have the right to block all or part of a bequest made to an Heir. However, Heirs can be nominated as the Beneficiaries of the MyLegacy Cover™ extender on the Tazkiya™ Family Takaful.

It would be better to give a gift while you are alive, but be mindful that this can still create an unfair disadvantage.
