Favor a jurisprudence school
  Juristic schools may have different opinions about how to divide up an estate. The IRTH program does not favor any specific school, but rather follows the recommendations of the book "Fiqh-us Sunna." If you prefer to follow a specific juristic school, click on the radio button next to its name.

Allow reversion
When the estate is undersubscribed after named heirs get their named shares, the majority of scholars divide up the remainder among the named heirs by the ratios of their named shares. This redivision of the remainder is called 'rudd' or reversion. Imam Malik did not allow reversion. Malik's students allowed reversion only if the treasury is corrupt. Checking this box means you want to allow reversion.
Allow reversion to spouses
The majority opinion does not include spouses in reversion, as they are not blood relatives. Uthman includes spouses in reversion as they are named heirs. Egyptian law includes spouses in reversion if they are the sole heirs. Checking this box means you want to allow reversion to spouses.
Bequest to non-heirs
  Specify a bequest to non-heirs as a fraction of the estate, e.g., 1/4, not to exceed 1/3 or leave blank
