Legal Services for Muslims in South Africa
Muslim Personal Law – Assalaamoe Alaykoem. Shukran for visiting this website. The South African legal system is based on secular principles and standards. What this means for Muslims is that South African law is at times in conflict with Shariah Law. For example, if someone passes away in South Africa without a last will and testament, his or her estate would be distributed to his heirs in terms of the South African Law of Inheritance. However, the South African law of inheritance is not the same as Islamic law of inheritance. We would assist you in drafting your Shariah Compliant last will and testament to ensure that Shariah Law applies at your death. At the same time, we provide other useful services. These include pre-nikkah and post nikkah agreements, shariah compliant contract drafting, and shariah investment agreements, to mention a few.
