AL-QURAN : Al-Imran(3)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

"Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing). (3:185)


`Abdullah bin `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,

"It is the duty of a Muslim who has something which is to be given as a bequest not to have it for two nights without executing a written will.''

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

In the narration of Muslim it is narrated as `three nights'. Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: Since I heard the Messenger of Allah say this, I have never spent a night without having my will with me.


The emphasis of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) on the necessity of making a last will shows that man has no knowledge of the time of his death. It is necessary for the rich that they should keep with them a testament so as to leave their affairs settled after their death and to ward off any untoward situation with regard to the distribution of their property among their inheritors.
