Shariah Estate & Financial Planning is becoming more and more essential and critical in the lives of Muslims who wish to ensure that their estates and wills are well planned to cater for all eventualities. The Shariah Estate & Financial Planning Seminar will bring together a host of experts to discuss various aspects of Estate and Financial planning from an Islamic perspective taking into account the realities that face Muslims today.

These and many other issues will be discussed. SEMINAR OBJECTIVES To create awareness on the importance of adequate financial and estate planning To equip participants with knowledge and skills regarding ...
