Inheritance & Succession

Posted on April 9, 2012 by admin in Uncategorized

Law of inheritance in Pakistan is different for Muslims, Hindus, Christians etc. keeping in view their respective religious background. In case of legal heirs of a Muslim deceased person, all shares of the estate or property are distributed according to Islamic laws. There is no concept of will. The share of every legal heir will depend upon the closeness of his/her relationship with the deceased. There is no universal formula or rule, and every case is different from others. Who gets what depends upon the fact that how many children, wives, sisters, brothers and other relatives deceased had. Moreover, different rules apply in cases where deceased person had donated his property to someone during his lifetime.
