The Islamic Law of Succession

Author: M.S Omar
Publisher: Butterworth Publishers
Edition: 1998
Pages: 105


The laws of succession and the distribution of wealth are fundamentally important and form an integral part of our Shariah.

The author has made an academic presentation of the Islamic Shariah laws on inheritance together with its application in terms of the South African law. The book is basically divided into two parts. Part one deals with the scope and application of the Islamic Law of Succession with the South African legal system; and part two deals with the substantive rules of the Islamic Law of Succession. The examples are well illustrated by means of diagrams.

It is an excellent book with a deep understanding of the subject matter - a scholarly work ideal for students of Deen as well as readers interested on the topic.

Our Testimonials

I personally know the honourable Shaykh Mahomed Shoaib Omar for over thirty years. I found him to be an ardent seeker of knowledge, quick of mind &  constantly devoted to the study of the books of fiqh &  has written himself a number of papers. He has been amongst the foremost participants in drafting the Muslim Personal Law for S.Africa, so that it may be enforced there; and the majority of local Ulama have endorsed this.
