Fiqh of Inheritance

Arkview+ (Scholarship)

This class is included in Arkview+.

The Fiqh of Inheritance is one of the essential chapters of Fiqh that relates to the proper division of estates. The source texts of Shari’ah have given precise guidance on the division of rights to help families through one of the most sensitive transitions in life.

This course will explore the different chapters of Islamic inheritance law primarily based on the Arabic text, Takimilat Zubdat al-Hadith by al-Habib Muhammad bin Salim bin Hafiz, a great Shafi’i scholar of Tarim, Yemen, and the father of Habib Umar.
The course will start with laying the foundations and basic concepts. It will be interactive and include many problem-solving exercises. The text is based on the Shafi’i school, but the course will address scholarly disagreement when applicable. It will also address some of the common misconceptions directed against Islamic Inheritance Law.
