REVOCATIONI REVOKE all my previous Wills and testamentary dispositions2. DECLARATION OF FAITH I bear witness that there is no deity but Allah, the One, the Merciful, AlmightyGod, Creator of the heavens and the earth and all therein, God of Abraham,Moses, Jesus, Muhammad and all the Prophets, mercy and peace be uponthem. He is the One God and He has no partner. And I bear witness that theProphet Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger and the last of all theProphets, mercy and peace be upon them all. I bear witness that Paradise istruth, and Hell is truth. And I bear witness that the coming of the Day of Judgement is truth, there is no doubt about it, and that Allah, Who is exaltedabove all deficiency and imperfection, will surely resurrect the dead of all thegenerations of mankind; first and last and those in between.This is my counsel to my relatives and friends, my Muslim brothers and sisters,and all those who remain after me: that they strive to be true Muslims that theysubmit to their Creator, may He be exalted, and worship Him as He alone is to beworshipped, fear Him and love Him and His Prophet Muhammad peace be uponhim with a complete love that is rivalled by nothing besides them. Let them obeyHim and hold fast to His Shariah. Let them spread and firmly establish Hisreligion of Islam, and let them die only in a state of complete submission to HisWill.I remind them that no man and no woman dies before their time. The exactduration of each life span is precisely determined before we are born, by the All-Powerful Creator, may He be exalted. Death is tragic only for the one who livedout their life in self-deception without submitting to The Creator and preparing for the final return to Him. So, do not preoccupy yourselves with my death, butinstead make the proper preparations for your own.  Maintain patience and self-composure, as the religion of Islam requires. Islampermits male and female relatives to mourn for up to three days. However awidow is required to observe mourning for the duration of her  iddah (period of waiting). Wailing and excessive lamentation is forbidden by the Creator, may Hebe exalted.Finally, I ask all my relatives, friends and all others, whether they choose tobelieve as I believed or not to honour my beliefs. I ask them to honour myinstructions and wishes in this document and not to seek to alter or obstruct it inany way. Rather, let them see that I am buried as I have asked to be buried, andlet my assets be divided as I wanted them to be divided.3. FUNERAL WISHES I direct my Executors, surviving relatives and friends to ensure that I have afuneral strictly in accordance with Islamic law, that must include Ghusl (washing),Janazah (funeral prayer) and Dafn (burial). In particular I do not wish for anautopsy to be performed on my body, and request that my body be released for burial immediately upon death or as soon as is practical. In the event that anautopsy becomes a legal requirement, I would wish that this is met through anMRI scan. I would also like to be buried in the Muslim Cemetery closest to theplace of my death. I am aware that this is a serious obligation and would requestthat you use your best endeavours to reach agreement over the fundamentalmatters mentioned and compromise on others if you differ in opinion4. GUARDIANSHIPI APPOINT my {relation} ‘INSERT NAME OF GUARDIAN1’ of  ‘INSERTADDRESS’ to be the Guardian of any of my children who are under the age of eighteen at the time of my death but if {he/she} is unable or unwilling to act for any reason then I appoint INSERT NAME OF GUARDIAN2’ of  ‘INSERTADDRESS’ to be the Guardian
