Muslim inherits from non-muslim
Q. Regarding the issue of inheritance from non-Muslims: I am not sure I understand this issue vis-a-vis permissibility of inheriting property, capital, and other forms of wealth from them. The same issue pertains to leaving wealth for non-Muslims. In my case, these non-Muslims are blood relatives. The literature, to include Qur’an, I have read on this topic seems to assume all people with the legal claim to the inheritance are Muslim. Could someone expand on this topic?
Muslim may inherit from a non-Muslim but not vice-versa. This is what my shaykh said.
