On 21 October 2017, FSU along with Property Legal Consultation Law & Society (HartaGuam) had succesfully organizing a seminar entitled “Hibah vs Faraid: Biar Tahu, Jangan Keliru" in USIM. The seminar allow audience to understand deeper between the Islamic concept of “Hibah” or estate of disposal and “Faraid” or the Islamic law of succession or the Islamic law of inheritance. Hibah is different with faraid whereby it involves the voluntary and unconditional giving or transfer of asset from a donor to a beneficiary and the appointment of trustee to hold an asset in trust on behalf of both parties. The asset distribution is decided and committed inter vivos unlike faraid that only happen after the asset owner’s death. In fact, neither offer nor acceptance is strictly necessary if someone makes a hibah and it is enough that the subject matter is brought by the donor and taken possession by the donee.
