In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful


All praise is for Allah (swt) the creator of the heavens and earth.

I _________________________________________ praise Allah, I seek His help and His forgiveness. I believe in Him and put my trust entirely in Him. I seek refuge with Allah (swt) from the evils of myself and my deeds. Whom Allah (swt) guides no one can mislead, and whom Allah (swt) misleads no one can guide. I testify that there is no deity except Allah, He is One and has no partners, and I further testify that Muhammed (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is Allah’s servant and Last Messenger.
I being of sound mind, memory, and emotions declare the following as my will (wasiyah). I do hereby revoke any and all former wills and codicils that I have previously made.


  1. I am married to ____________________ and all references in this will to my __________ are to ________.

  2. I am the _________________ of the following child whose name and date of birth are:

  1. _____________________________ ____________________________

  2. _____________________________ ____________________________

  1. I ordain that:

  1. My body be prepared for burial in keeping with the Muslim Law (Shariah).

  2. Under no circumstances my body be voluntarily turned over for an autopsy, or embalming or for organ donation.

  3. My body be prepared for burial by Muslims according to the dictate of Shariah (Islamic Law). Once the body is prepared for burial there is to be no viewing of my remains.

  4. Absolutely no non-Islamic religious service or observance shall be conducted upon my death, or on my body or at the grave site. No pictures, crescents and stars, decorations, crosses, flags, flowers, plants, any symbols or music be involved at any stage of my burial.

  5. My body may not be transported over any unreasonable distance from the locality of death unless necessitated by the circumstances or consensus of my Muslim family members and while on accordance of the Muslim Law (Shariah). Further, my body is not to be shipped to any other country because every land belongs to Allah, and I shall be buried where I die and in a Muslim cemetery.

  6. My grave be dug in complete accordance with the Islamic practice. It should face in the direction of the Qiblah (towards the Ka’aba at Makkah, Saudi Arabia).

  7. My body be buried without casket or any other encasement that separates the shroud from the surrounding soil, unless required by local laws. In the event that the local laws require casket encasement, I command that such encasement be of the simplest, most modest, and least expensive type possible, and I furthermore command that the encasement be left open during burial and filled with dirt unless prohibited by law.

  8. My grave be covered with dirt only. The marking, if necessary, should be a simple rock. There should be no inscriptions or symbols.

  9. My burial should take place as soon as possible, preferably before sunset on the day of my death or the following day. Under no circumstances should the burial be excessively delayed.

  10. No one is permitted to cry out, moan or wail. I demand that such a person leave the burial site. Only what comes from the eye is acceptable (tears). Muslims should say a duaa for me and there be a moment of silence when they pray that my grave is made spacious and comfortable. No recitation of the Qur’an is permitted over my grave.
