Please ensure that the three things which have priority over the distribution of deceased’s estate are taken care off before the distribution.

They are:

1. Burial Expenses

2. Debts

3. Bequests (wasiyya)

Debts
All debts of the deceased are to be paid off completely from what is left of the assets belonging to him. Now comes rights of others, which are very strongly emphasized in Islamic law, so much so that Allah is not going to forgive anyone in the hereafter, if his debts to others are not paid off or overlooked by the concerned person.
Bequests (wasiyyah)
The wasiyya (last wishes) of the deceased are to be carried out at the expense of the deceased. But this may cover at most a third of what is left out of the estate after the burial expenses and the debts are paid off.
Debts

All debts of the deceased are to be paid off completely from what is left of the assets belonging to him. If the assets cover the debts, all of it will go for that. But if the assets are short, then the debt is to be paid off as much as possible, and the total amount will go to the creditor. If there are more than one creditor and the assets are not enough to entirely cover all of them, then each one of them will get a proportionate amount and each suffers in the same ratio.

It will be in their own everlasting interests to waive the debt of a deceased whose estate lacks assets to discharge the liability. The reward of waiving debts is vastly more and superior to giving charity.

Bequests (wasiyyah)
The wasiyya (last wishes) of the deceased are to be carried out at the expense of the deceased. But this may cover at most a third of what is left out of the estate after the burial expenses and the debts are paid off. The one third (or less) of the wasiyyah to be given to a non-inheritor in the following categories:
  • (1) For charity projects like the building of mosques, the digging of wells, or providing a share of the legacy to poor, non-inheriting relatives.
  • (2) Payment of fidyah (compensation) for salat, saum and Hajj which were not executed during the lifetime of the deceased.
  • (3) Payment of kaffarah (penalty) for violated oaths, fasts etc.
When the third is insufficient for execution of more than one wasiyyat, priority will be accorded to the wasiyyat of greater importance. Example: wasiyyat was made on first and second category. Since second category (payment of fidyah for Salat, Saum and Hajj) is more important than the first one, payment of the second category will be done first.
When wasiyyat was made on more them one item on second or third category and the third is insufficient for execution, the wasiyyat which was made first will be discharged and others will be cancelled.
When wasiyyat of different amounts were made for several person in first category and the third is insufficient to execute all, then each of them will get a proportionate amount and each suffer in the same ratio.
Prophet(S.A.S) sayings

Learn the laws of inheritance and teach it the people. It is one half of useful knowledge. It is going to be forgotten and it is the first one to be raised off from my people.

Reported from Abu Huraira R.A. Ibn maja

SHARE IT (Islamic Software) is an attempt to simplify the sharing of inheritance to the Muslim ummah. It is also aimed at facilitating the distribution of legacy according to Islamic injunction. The package is expected to make the distribution of legacy not just easier, faster but also logical in line with the approved Islamic jurisprudence.

Legacy distribution according to Islamic jurisprudence is a difficult aspect in Islam with its numerous diverse categorizations which may appear confusing.
