Author(s): Anmol Singh Khanuja
Abstract: In a country like India where the Constitution enunciates some very progressive values for the development of Indian society, it also provides a plethora amount of rights to the religious sects to follow their certain customs, rituals and practices. Amongst those practices there happens to be leverage given to the Muslim community to follow their own Sharia law pertaining to testamentary successions. There exist a lot of conditions that are required to be followed while executing the will and that is the only aim of this paper. This paper aims to analyze those conditions with special reference to the difference between the Sunni and Shia schools of will.
