    Title: Witness for Hiba and Will

    Question: My Questions are: (1) How many persons are required to stand as a witness if a Hibanama or a Wasiyat is made in oral or in written form? (2) In case 1 Man is there as a witness, then do we require 1 woman or 2 women to complete the minimum requirement of witness?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1668/1334/B=12/1434) (1) It least two witnesses are necessary. (2) If there is one man and two women, then the criteria of witness is complete and such a witness will be valid and effective; otherwise not.
