    The country I am researching regarding inheritance laws is Iran. Anyone in Ian is allowed to make a will as long as they are 18 years old. However, Sharia has placed two restrictions on the testator. First to whom he can bequeath his estate and secondly, the amount that he can bequeath. It does not state that a testator is required to hire an attorney to make a will, but it is always recommended to do so. Inheritance in Iran generally follows the rules and the legal code prescribed by Islamic law. It can be found in the Qur’an chap 4-12 and 176. It contains three verses (4:11, 4:12 and 4:176) which give specific details of inheritance shares. There are many different principles that decide who gets inheritance first and also how much. In Qur’an the first principle states that all males and females are of equal degree and class. Which furthermore means that a son can inherit a share equivalent to that of two daughters. In New York law, a spouse is first to inherit under the laws of intestacy and if there is no spouse the estate is divided by the issue equally. Under Islamic law male children inherit full shares of their father’s estate, wives, and the daughter’s half shares. An individual is allowed to make a religious bequest of specific goods or property that is administered by the ministry of Waqfs. Allah commands that when a Muslim dies that there must be a payment of funeral expenses, payment of his or her debts, an execution of his or her will, and a distribution of the remaining estate amongst the heirs according to Sharia. In Islamic law, the son takes priority over the father who in turn takes priority over the brothers who in turn take priority over the paternal uncles. There poses a question of the placement of the women and daughters that may be in their lives, as well as whether there is fairness or standards. There are many prestigious law firms in Iran that practice in many different areas of law. On site would be

    The website listed above is a direct link to a superb picture of a casket in an Iranium museum. The detail on the casket looks so amazing and I was surprised to see that it was carved in a way where it looks like a man is wearing a hat and playing an instrument. I also noticed that it comes with a lock that can be placed on the casket and that there are many different colors and designs that can be made. There is a floral type of design circling the man playing the instrument also but the man on the casket doesn’t have a face, it’s completely blank. There can be a sculpture of a man, flowers, people women, anything at all.
