Estate Planning for the Muslim Client
October 23, 2019
This webinar will provide a practical survey of the many areas of estate and related planning that practitioners, including attorneys, CPAs, wealth advisors, and others, can address client religious concerns of Muslim clients. These are vital concepts that every practitioner should be familiar with. A 2017 Pew study on U.S. Muslim population estimated 3.5 million Muslims living in America. Tailoring their estate plans to meet their religious objectives is vital to serving this growing group of clients. Transferring and transmitting values, ethics, and traditions have become an important part of estate planning. What does this mean for the Muslim client? How can and should wills, trusts, investment policy statements, powers of attorney, health proxies be modified to address Islamic law and concerns of the Muslim client? Yaser Ali is a wealth-planning attorney in Tempe, Arizona, and counsels individuals and families with their estate, tax, and charitable planning needs. Yaser is also trained as an Imam and is the co-author of the ABA's recently published practice guide on Estate Planning for the Muslim Client. There are no professional advancement clients (CPE, CLE, etc.)offered for viewing this webinar. *This may constitute attorney advertising.
