Write a Will (2:180 – 2:182)

Write A Will
[2:180] It is decreed that when death approaches, you shall write a will for the benefit of the parents and relatives, equitably. This is a duty upon the righteous.
[2:181] If anyone alters a will he had heard, the sin of altering befalls those responsible for such altering. GOD is Hearer, Knower.
[2:182] If one sees gross injustice or bias on the part of a testator, and takes corrective action to restore justice to the will, he commits no sin. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

Most people deny death and put off having an end of life plan. Reading about death and having this top of mind makes it a reality and allows us to avoid a lot of hardship for our loved ones once we pass.

Why does it say “will to the benefit of the parents”?

We never know who is going to die. When we have something of value that we want to pass on then it makes sense to have a will. If you are supporting your parents it makes sense to have a will for their benefit.

Very important to have a will/living trust as the court system in the US makes it very painful for the individuals of loved ones who passed.

La Crosse, Wisconsin is a town where over 90% of the town have an end of life plan, and death is not a topic that people shy away from.
