Inheritance is a high significant issue in Islamic jurisprudence and law, which should be considered as a main subject in the Muslimseducational system. In law, in its general aspect, the decease of people which means the disconnection between them and their properties, is an undeniable fact. Sometimes, a person happens not to make a will to decide on how to share their wealth or properties. This leads to create something legally called properties without owner. In this case, it is the ruling law that determines how to distribute the properties. This is the cause why inheritance law has been established and existed during all times and in all legal systems and are considered as a possession tool. Since the legal regulations are deeply rooted in traditions, customs and beliefs of every community, it makes these sorts of law to be different in different legal systems, from both viewpoints of inherits and their shares.
