Islamic society has its foundation in Islamic idealism of which Islamic jurisprudence is an important element. Indeed, its legal system forms the bedrock of the equitable and just society that Islam aims to establish. The Islamic law of Inheritance, dealing with the subject of the distribution of inheritance, the principles of which are based on divine knowledge and wisdom, has been made explicit in the Qur'an and the Hadith. Therefore, ignorance of it is tantamount to gross negligence of divine laws. A Muslim must aim at a proper understanding of these laws in the light of the Qur'an and Sunnah.

However, much as the importance of understanding these laws is evident from the sayings of the prophet Muhammad, Muslims have been found wanting in this area. This may be because of the lack of a book which could explain this complex subject in language easily understood by the common man. Keeping this in mind, this book, endeavours to present the Islamic laws of inheritance in clear and simplified language.
