Hajj 2017 begins the evening of Wednesday, August 30 and ends the evening of Monday, September 4. Each year, millions of Muslims from around the world participate in the five-day Hajj pilgrimage. Indeed, as an article in the Independent suggests, about two million Muslims are likely to participate in the pilgrimage this year to Mecca. Given that Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, all Muslims who are able to make the pilgrimage are required to do so at least once.

Since the pilgrimage comes with physical challenges and requires travel to Saudi Arabia, it is important to have your affairs in order before going to Hajj. As such, if you are planning on going for Hajj, you should speak with a Muslim trusts and estates lawyer in DuPage County today to get started on this process.

Why Should I Create a Will Before Going to Hajj?

While preparation for Hajj is an important time to create a Last Will and Testament, it is important for everyone, regardless of your income or the economic value of your possessions, to think about inheritance issues. Islamic law has specific mandates when it comes to inheritance, and if you do not prepare a last will and testament, your estate may be subject to Illinois intestate succession law.

The Hajj is the largest gathering of people worldwide, and for many Muslims, and given the sheer number of people, accidents can happen. To be sure, millions of people undertake this annual five-day pilgrimage, and you should have plans for your estate in place before you travel. An experienced Islamic lawyer in DuPage County can assist you today.
