In the UK, if one passes away without writing a will, they have passed intestate. This means that your wealth will be distributed in accordance with the English Law of Intestacy which disregards any religious beliefs and obligations.

It is written in the Quran that writing a will is prescribed in Islam, this is to be found in the Qur'an and Sunnah, and the consensus of the scholars.

Allah says:

"It is prescribed for you, when death approaches any of you, if he leaves wealth, that he makes a bequest to parents and next of kin, according to reasonable manners. This is a duty upon Al-Muttaqoon the pious" [al-Baqarah 2:180]
