Why Muslim Expats Should Register a Will in the UAE?
step 1

Opt out of Shariah Law

As a Muslim expat, you can now avoid the application of Shariah Law for the distribution of your assets. You can also opt for your home country law to govern the distribution of your assets.

step 2

Select your beneficiaries

You can choose your beneficiaries and determine their share. Moreover, you no longer need to obtain consent letters from your legal heir to distribute your assets the way you want to.

step 3

Appoint guardians for your minor children

With a Will, Muslim expats can appoint a guardian of their choice (subject to a few specific exceptions) for their minor. The guardian will be responsible for the child’s financial security and will make all major decisions in the best interest of the child.

step 4

Shorter probate process

With a registered Will in the UAE, Muslim expats can make it easier for their loved ones to inherit the assets they leave behind. A registered Muslim Will means a shorter probate process thus saving time and money for your loved ones.

Who Can Register a Muslim Will in the UAE?
