Marz-ul-Maut in Muslim Law

Marz-ul-Maut in Muslim Law
In India Muslims are allowed to follow their own personal civil law. This is a legacy of the British Raj which allowed all religions to have their own personal civil laws. The governing tenet of Muslim personal civil law is the Shariat. One of the provisions relates to Marz-ul-Maut (death bed Gifts). This can only be executed in case there is genuine apprehension that the testator will die.
