Salaam,

I am writing my last will according to islam. I have 3 children, 2 boys and one daughter, all are educated and will be independently earning a similar wage. I want to make sure that they are equally compensated, especially my daughter who under islamic law would only get half of what a son would get. How can I compensate her for the other half?

Also, do you have a good template of a will that I can use?

Thank you for your help,

Salaam

Asalaam o alaikum, here is a template, and gidence notes for will making. http://www.muslimaid.org/images/stories/pdfs/Wills_Guide.pdf As regards compensating your daughter, there is a reason why Allah made such laws as to wills, and inheritance. The only way round this is to leave your daughter a gift now, whilst you are able and living.
