The concept of Will according to Holy Quran

The Holy Quran is the most read book in the entire world. It is the only scripture present in its original form as it was revealed on Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). The following versus Surah Albaqrah of the Holy Quran are clear on the concept of Will in Islamic Law:-

180. It is prescribed for you, when death approaches any of you, if he leaves wealth, that he make a bequest to parents and next of kin, according to reasonable manners. (This is) a duty upon Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2).

181. Then whoever changes the bequest after hearing it, the sin shall be on those who make the change. Truly, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.

182. But he who fears from a testator some unjust act or wrong-doing, and thereupon he makes peace between the parties concerned, there shall be no sin on him. Certainly, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

It means that even if a will is wrongly made then the Judge has powers to correct it in the lights of Islamic Law of Inheritance.
