I removed this quote:

because it seemed out of place given that it was originally placed in the lead section. If anyone thinks it should be in the article, it should probably go somewhere else (although it really doesn't seem to be related to inheritance). Tentoila (talk) 01:37, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

unreadable unencyclopedic fancruft[edit]

This page is completely unreadable to a secular person. Too many quotes from Quran in who knows what translation (and meaningless poetic old english) that are sitting for no reason, I think they were supposed to be footnotes, but who knows; not enough interpretations of them and it doesn't describe the most important part of implementation of inheritance. For example "A. Inheritance: 2/3 of wealth/assets are distributed based on Shariah Law. This is called (ميراث)", this is never defined in the article but mentioned twice, the policy on the optional 1/3rd Will part is described in great detail, nothing is described about the 2/3s mandatory to family except for the daughter/son split. There is nothing mentioned on the split between brothers, and its hard for me to tell what happens to a childless man/couple. It seems there was an edit war in the history of this page between rambling uncited anon editors getting reverted by registered editors.

The Arabic should be in footnotes (if at all) and the Quran quotes cited and templated properly. I'm not sure which WP policy it is. This article has WP:MOS and WP:TONE and other problems all over it. Its not written in an encyclopedic manner, and it sounds like it was written for Muslim eyes only. Look at how much more readable and encyclopedic Sharia is. It should also be expanded to cover the various executions and real world practices of inheritance among the divisions and branches of Islam, and under Islamic Republics, Caliphates, and muslims in secular countries.

Well, my Muslim eyes (j/k) have also been dismayed by the general lack of encyclopedic content and style of this article. Hopefully, things should be a bit better now. Wiqi - talk 21:41, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

This article is completely biased. It makes general statements without providing any proof. It does not state the situation it supposedly improved on. It does not state how and what improvement was made. This is not an encyclopaedic entry, but propaganda. It urgently requires factual reworking.
