Islamic law is adopted by British legal chiefs
Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system for the first time under guidelines for solicitors on drawing up "Sharia compliant" wills.
Under ground-breaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether.
The documents, which would be recognised by Britain's courts, will also prevent children born out of wedlock – and even those who have been adopted – from being counted as legitimate heirs.
