Guides to Inheritance.

Inheritance is the practice of passing on property, titles, debts, rights and obligations upon the death of an individual. The person who inherits is known as an heir. Inheritance has played a crucial role in human since time immemorial. Inheritance has rules and nobody can just inherit a property.
The guide to inheritance can be traced from law, society or religion. For instance, in law, a person does not become an heir before the death of the decedent. This is because the exact identity of the person entitled to inhibit is determined only then.
The Quran is another guide to inheritance. The Quran imposes restrictions on testamentary power in disposing of his or her property.  Muslims are required to give only up to one third of their property.
Jewish law is another guide to inheritance.A father is the owner of property in this religion. Inheritance is patrilineal i.e. property passes from father to the father’s son. If the father has no son and he dies, then the property goes to the daughter.
History can also provide guide to inheritance. Anthropology and sociology give account on use of patrilineal inheritance and to some extent matrilineal i.e. property passes along female lines. Inheritance of property has taken a new root. Decedents often leave wills which explains on mean of sharing the property of the decedents. A will is the most convenient way to guide for inheritance since it specifies who should inherit what and what?
