Lincolnwood Counsel for Islamic Finance Matters

Our Skokie Muslim attorneys understand that the principles of Islam can have a direct impact on all types of business and financial matters. With our background and knowledge of Islamic law, we know how to develop an approach that incorporates those principles regarding banking, business structuring, dispute resolution, mergers, acquisitions, project financing, and more. Our experience also allows us to provide advice that is directly applicable to the sector or industry in which your business operates. We will take the time to get to know you and your business so that we can understand and appreciate your needs and objectives. This gives us the ability to help you obtain the best possible outcome for your case and to assist you in reaching your long-term goals.

Islamic Family Law Concerns

Disputes associated with divorce are often bitter, emotional, and highly contentious, especially when children are involved. For Muslims living in America, the process of finding a resolution can be even more challenging. The laws regarding divorce, child custody (allocation of parental responsibility), and other family law matters in Illinois were not drafted to incorporate Islamic principles. That is why you need an attorney who can help the Court and other attorneys understand the ways in which your faith will affect the proceedings.

Attorneys Ausaf K. Farooqi and Naveed S. Husain can help you manage all aspects of a divorce under both Islamic law and the laws of the state, including mahr agreement, your Islamic divorce certificate, and much more. We can also assist with more traditional elements of an American divorce such as marital property division, child-related matters, and spousal support.

Muslim Estate Planning in Glenview

Inheritance rights and planning for the future are important concepts under Islamic law, and our Prophet emphasized the importance of having a last will and testament written. Unfortunately, studies show that more than half of American adults do not have a will or any other type of estate plan. If you were to die without an estate plan, your assets and property will be distributed by the state of Illinois, which is a violation of Islamic law. At Farooqi & Husain Law Office, we realize that the Qur'an specifies that your family is to receive two-thirds of your estate and that you must determine who will inherit the remaining third. Similarly, your outstanding debts must also be settled in accordance with Islamic law. Our attorneys can help you draft legally sound estate planning documents that meet the requirements of Illinois law while incorporating Islamic faith-based principles.

The experienced attorneys at Farooqi & Husain Law Office understand the challenges that Muslims face around the world.

Our team has the knowledge and skills to help you and your family with your most complicated immigration concerns, including family immigration petitions, requests for asylum, and much more. No matter what obstacles you may be facing, we are equipped to provide the assistance you need.
