1 Answer 1


Convert to Islam:

He\She will receive inheritance from Muslim relations but will not receive inheritance from non-Muslim relations.

On his\her death, Muslim heirs will receive the estate, any non-Muslim relatives will not receive anything.

Who leave Islam:

He\She will not receive inheritance from any one.

On his\her death, following opinions regarding distribution of estate:

  • It will all be confiscated into Bayt-ul-Maal
  • It will all be distributed among any Muslim heirs.
  • The portion earned while they were Muslims will be distributed to the Muslim heirs, anything earned during apostasy will be confiscated.
