icdbd-QA/0022: What is the difference between “waseeyat” and making a will

I would appreciate very much if you could please help me understand verse 2:170 the meaning of which is  ”waseeyat is made obligatory (kutiba) on you regarding your wealth….” . What is the difference between “waseeyat” and making a will. My understanding is that making a will is not permissible in Islam.  Also,  verse 4:7-8 gives specific instruction about inheritance. Then is verse 2:170 talking of any special situation?

icdbd-QA/0010: Ruling on discriminating among children

My husband has 2 siblings, an elder brother and sister. My parents in-law are very biased about their daughter. So much that my father in-law already declared that his property will be divided into 3 equal shares. I, on the other hand, am the only child of my father, and as per Islamic rule I will get only half of his properties, which I am okay with. But still I consoled my husband saying that it is his father's property and he can decide what to do with it. This is just one example, there are so so many of them. My husband is their youngest child and is very emotional. He is in huge mental unrest! So, I want to know whether there is any such ruling that prevents parents from doing such discrimination.

icdbd-QA/0009: Should a pregnant mother continue her involvement in academic activities

  • whether a pregnant mother should still continue her involvement in academic activities (even an Islamic one) which requires her to go to distant university in the later stage of the pregnancy. it resembles those sisters who do not practice deen and go to their corporate office even week before the delivery. This is in the greater interest of increasing the number of Muslim community in future where the earning of knowledge can be deferred. Also whether completing studies in a worldly discipline or a Deeni one is any excuse to delay consummation of marriage and family planning. Please answer with respect to situation in Bangladesh.
