Inheritance Under Muslim Law: Framework of Sharia Law

September 25th, 2022

Further, being a civil law jurisdiction, the impact of precedents is null as compared to other common law jurisdictions. As opposed to other authorities, UAE does not follow the “right of survivorship” wherein the jointly-owned property will be given to the surviving owner, and the UAE courts have exclusive authority to decide upon such matters.

3. Under the law of inheritance, who holds the right to claim the deceased’s estate?

The heirs and descendants have the right to claim the estate of the deceased according to the Shariah Law for Muslims. Whereas, beneficiaries of the will can claim the estate in case of non-Muslims if there is a legally certified will. In case of a deceased Muslim, the estate will only be transferred to those who qualify as an heir under principles of Shariah.

The primary step for courts in the event of the death of a Muslim is to determine the heirs and reconfirm it through two male witnesses along with documentary proof such as marriage or birth certificates. According to the principles of Shariah, spouse, parents, children, grandchildren, siblings, grandparents (paternal), uncles/aunts, nephews/nieces are considered as heirs to the estate. It further imposes several conditions on who can become an heir mentioned as below:

Any illegitimate children and adopted children will not be considered as heirs;
Non-Muslim cannot benefit from the estate of a Muslim;
A person committing murder to benefit from the estate will be ineligible to claim the estate;
Divorced women cannot claim from ex-husband’s estate unless they are in “iddat” period.

4. How will the estate be divided among the heirs of a deceased Muslim under the law?

Traffic Laws

March 22nd, 2022

Are you interested in learning more about traffic law? If so, you have come to the right place. Throughout this article we will discuss what traffic law is, discuss some of the different traffic laws that are enforced, and discuss what to do if you have experienced a traffic law violation.

Traffic law includes a wide range of legal rules that govern traffic and regulate vehicles. The laws are set in place to keep roads safe and to regulate a timely flow of traffic. Traffic laws include, but are not limited to, speed limit laws, drunk driving laws, insurance laws, and parking laws. Let’s take a closer look at a few of these.

Speed limit laws deal with how fast an automobile is allowed to go within a certain area. The speed limit within a particular area will depend on several things including whether or not you are within city limits or whether you are on a highway, and whether or not you are in a school zone. The best way to avoid speeding tickets is by obeying the speed limits posted on the road. What happens if you get a speeding ticket? If you should experience a speeding violation several things could happen. The first is that you will lose demerit points from your licence. You could also be given a fine which must be paid within a certain time limit. The cost of the fine will depend on how much faster you were traveling than the speed limit. In other cases, you will be summoned to appear in traffic court where a determination of guilt will be made there.

Unlike speed limit laws, drunk driving laws are pretty stable throughout different states. In any state, there is no tolerance for drunk driving. When are you considered as someone who is driving intoxicated? Anyone who is driving and has a blood alcohol content of.08 % or more is considered to be a drunk driver and can experience severe legal penalties. The best way to avoid a DUI (driving under the influence) violation is to avoid drinking altogether if you are driving. While 1 or 2 drinks is usually okay, the best way to drive is with no alcohol in your system. What happens if you receive a DUI? If you have been pulled over for a DUI several things can happen. A person who has been caught driving under the influence may get probation, community service, or even jail time. They can also have their vehicle impounded and lose their driver’s license.

If you feel as though you have been wrongly accused of a traffic violation your first step is to hire a good lawyer. A good lawyer will work hard to prove your innocence and to prove that you do not deserve the charges that have been filed against you.

If you are a driver and would like to avoid traffic violations, be sure to follow all traffic laws. For more information on other traffic law violations conduct an internet search or speak to a representative from your local DMV.
