The World Federation in partnership with Africa Federation and Council of European Jamaats Launches ShiaWills.org


The World Federation in partnership with Africa Federation and The Council of European Jamaats have developed a service for writing of Wills - ShiaWills.org 
 
Its main purpose of this project is to assist Shia Ithna Asheri Muslims with creating simple Wills according to the ruling of Ayatullah Sayyid al-Sistani. This is normally a complicated activity with many rules applying to different situations. This service simplifies the process.
 
The site highlights the importance of creating a Will, provides clarity on the most up-to-date rulings from Sayyid al-Sistani and allows one to create his/her own simple Will by generating an example of a Will.
 
We request the Jamaats to inform Community members on the launch of this important service, so that maximum members can benefit from it.
