LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
I, ____________, presently residing at _____________________________________ , being of sound mind and memory, do hereby revoke any and all former Wills and codicils made by me, and do make, ordain, publish, and declare this document as my last will and testament hereinafter referred to as Will or WILL.

1 – PREAMBLE
As a firm believer in the tenets of Islam, I bear witness that there is no deity but Allah(swt), the ONE, the Merciful, the Almighty-Creator of the heavens and the earth and all therein, God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, and all the Prophets (mercy and peace be upon them all). He is One God and He has no partner. I bear witness that the Prophet Muhammad ( mercy and peace be upon him) is the Servant and the Messenger of Allah (swt) and the Last and the Final of all the Prophets (mercy and peace be upon them all ). I bear witness that Quran is the true word of Allah (swt) and the final holy and divine revelation to the Prophet Muhammad ( mercy and peace be upon him). I bear witness that after the Final Prophet Muhammad ( mercy and peace be upon him) no other prophet “in any form” is to be appointed by the Almighty Allah (swt). I bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (mercy and peace be upon him) physically embarked on the Night Journey (the Isra, the Maeraaj) to the heavens. I bear witness that Mehdi (ra) has not appeared to this date and is yet to appear according to the Ahadith of Prophet Muhammad (mercy and peace be upon him). I bear witness that Prophet Esa (as) (Jesus peace be upon him) never died and was raised Alive to the Heavens. I bear witness that Prophet Esa(as) (Jesus peace be upon him) has not descended to this date and is yet to descend from heavens in His(pbuh) second coming according to the Ahadith of Prophet Muhammad (mercy and peace be upon him). I bear witness that no part of the Quran has ever been abrogated or corrupted or changed and that the Allah (swt) has protected Quran from any such corruption. I bear witness that “ALL the Wives (ra)” of the Prophet Muhammad ( mercy and peace be upon him) are the most pious women and ALL (ra) are free from any corruption and ALL (ra) are mothers of the Muslim believers according to the Quran. I bear witness that all of the four main Sahaba(ra) the companions of the Prophet Muhammad ( mercy and peace be upon him) the Caliphs of the Caliphat-e-Rashida are the best of the Muslims and are free from any corruption and are equal in ranks. I bear witness that Allah (swt) is the Truth, that His promise is Truth, and that the Meeting with Him is Truth. I bear witness that Paradise is Truth and that Hell is Truth. I bear witness that the coming of the Day of Judgment is Truth, there is no doubt about it, and that Allah(swt),who is exalted above all deficiencies and imperfections, will surely resurrect the dead of all generations of mankind, first and last and those in between. I bear witness that a person who unconditionally believes by heart in ALL the tenets described here-above is a Muslim. I bear witness that the denial of all or any of the tenets described hereabove puts the denier out of the fold of Islam. This is my counsel to my all Muslim relatives and my all Muslim friends who remain after me: that they strive to be true Muslims, that they submit to their Creator—may He Be exalted—and worship Him as He alone is to be worshiped, fear Him as He alone is to be feared, love and obey Him and love and obey His Prophet Muhammad ( mercy and peace be upon him) with a completeness that is rivaled by nothing besides them. Hold Fast to the Shari’ah of Prophet
