As a revert, with Christian parents, am I able to accept inheritance payment from my parents.

closed Oct 16 '13 at 13:54 looks like a no. now this guy is a saudi and follows the salaf. but he is often quoted on this website as an authority. that may just be because he was the first "islamic scholar" to start to put his fataws on the internet and has a pretty extensive library of answers. 97 if i remember right. you may be able to find a different opinion somewhere else. do you follow one of the major schools of islamic jurisprudance? maliki, hanbali, hanifi, or shafi'i? (you're not a shia, right?) you might want to look to a more new school/westernized faqih if you want they money

here you go. this guy is outta da uk. call it a bequest and you have some wiggle room.

why don't you have them start gifting you money before they die?

btw, google bot is awesome. heir cash advances, but don't do that. those and selling annuities are a total rip offs.

Of course you can inherit they're money. They are your parents regardless of what religion they are. Its your lawful right.

I got to admit here, I think abul is right. I have checked the sites out, and my son says the same. You see I have to make a will ,,, and my parents are adjusting theirs. I feel an inheritance can be received via a gift, given in our cases via my brother. Thankyou Faisal, for all ,and abul for your answers.

this guy does islamic estate planning. he's in america, but one would think islamic law should be the same wherever. or he may know some one in your area? any syrians around? he might be a little busy. a huge case just fell in his lap. fbi shot a russian friend of the boston bomber 7 times in orlando.

faisal you need to look up. ;)
