UK Qualified Solicitor
Gone are the days where you need to see a solicitor to write an Islamic will. For decades, will writing has been slow, overpriced and complicated. We created True Wills to change that.
We’ll calculate the share of wealth each family member inherits, according to the guidelines set out in the Qur’an and Sunnah.
By appointing a guardian in your will, you enjoy the peace of mind knowing who takes care of your children.
Split up to a third of your wealth between a charity, friends and relatives who aren’t entitled to inherit from you.
Whether you move homes or are expecting a child, make unlimited changes for free in the first year.

Complete your online Islamic will in as little as 20 minutes. Only pay once it’s ready to be checked

After completing your Islamic will and getting it approved, simply print and sign it in front of two witnesses.

If you die without a will, your wealth will be distributed according to intestacy laws – which isn’t in accordance with shariah. If you’re a Muslim living in the UK, creating a will is your religious obligation.
Yes. You can leave a message or instructions for your loved ones in your Islamic will. For example, include the Mosque you prefer your Janazah to be held in or the cemetery you wish to be buried in.
Executors and trustees carry out the instructions in your Islamic will after you die.
Executors carry out funeral wishes, apply for probate and value your estate. Trustees manage the trusts which are placed in your will i.e. they look after your wealth in line with your wishes but at their discretion.
To make your will legally binding you need to sign it alongside two witnesses. Your witnesses also need to add their own details and signatures.
Some family members are entitled to inherit more from your wealth than others, according to the guideline set out in the Qur’an and Sunnah. We will calculate the share each family member inherits based on your circumstance. We don’t need to know the amount of money you have to calculate this. The share they each inherit will appear as a fraction in your letter of wishes attached to your Islamic will.
The cost of writing an Islamic will online is £98, saving you over £200 compared to high street solicitors. You can begin by writing your will for free through our portal – you only need to pay once you’re finished and ready for your Islamic will to be checked by our in-house solicitor.
Once your Islamic will is complete, you can make as many updates as you like in the first year, absolutely free. Bear in mind, once your will has been signed in front of two independent witnesses it is a legally binding document. Therefore if you update your will, it has to be printed and signed in front of two independent witnesses again.
To keep things simple, we allow you to choose the same people as your executors and trustees. You can choose family, friends, or a mix of both.
Please select two people and ensure that they’re over 18, are trustworthy and can comfortably manage finances and paperwork.
The cost of creating an Islamic will over the phone is £148, saving you over £200 compared to high street solicitors.

Upon completion, we’ll either email your will over or send it to you by post.
As a Muslim, you can leave up to 33% of your total wealth to a charity and to friends. Including a charity in your Islamic will is a great opportunity to earn Sadaqah Jariyah, a continuous and ongoing charity after you die. We have a list of over 1000 UK registered Muslim charities for you to choose from. You may also include relatives who aren’t entitled to inherit from you. Leaving a gift in your Islamic will is entirely optional.
