الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

Shares of heirs are clearly prescribed in “shariah”, therefore a Will in their favor is not allowed. If a person initiates a Will in favor of heirs it is considered invalid.

Upon the death of a person, it is recommended that the legal heirs inquire about the rights and rulings about shares of heirs and of the inheritance from a competent religious authority.

واللہ اعلم بالصواب
