Inheritance Provisions in Pakistan
When it comes to Muslim inheritance, the rules and regulations vary depending on the sect or sub-
sect of the deceased, such as Cutchi Memon, Khoja, Sunni or Shia. The court that presides over these
matters is also decided based on the domicile of the deceased. If there is any dispute over this
information, or if the domicile is unknown, then the court will preside based on where the property
is located. For example, if the property is located in Pakistan, then a Civil District Court or High Court
would be competent to handle any inheritance issues.
