Marz-Ul-Maut: An Analysis

Lakshay Chaudhary, Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies


This document delves into the legal concept of Marz-ul-Maut in Islamic law, particularly focusing on its implications within Muslim personal law in India. Marz-ul-Maut refers to death-bed gifts, which are recognized under Shariat, the personal civil law governing Muslims in India. The study examines the legal framework surrounding Marz-ul-Maut, including its definition, conditions for validity, and limitations imposed by Islamic law. It also analyzes relevant court cases to illustrate how Marz-ul-Maut is interpreted and applied in practice. Ultimately, the research underscores the significance of Marz-ul-Maut within Islamic succession law, as it combines elements of both gift and will, and highlights its unique role in facilitating property transfers during a person's final illness.
