SHAH ALAM – Warkah Akhir Sdn Bhd has launched ‘e-wasiat’, an online Islamic will-writing service, for a one-time payment of

Its chief executive officer, Ahmad Fakhrul Anuar Ismail, said the public could access the service via its website at www.ewasiat.my.

“Our company offers a complete will-writing service online for RM100 and without any fixed time limit, one can fill a form online with details of the will.

“Besides the distribution of property based on the will, we also offers personal will services and debt payments. With such comprehensive services, this will encourage people to make will writing as a practice,” he told a press conference after launching e-wasiat here today.

He said many Muslims did not write wills as they thought they were meant only for the wealthy.

“We want to change that perception as every Muslim is required to leave a will. A will is not only for dividing properties but also can be in the form of a request, asking a beneficiary or other individuals to settle the will writer’s debt after the writer dies,” he said.

Ahmad Fakhrul said the company was confident of signing up one million people for its service in the next eight years.

“We have developed various strategies including holding awareness campaigns to encourage people to write wills,” he said. – BERNAMA
