Muslims in KHI does not mention that a person is prevented from becoming an heir due to religious
differences. Non-Muslim heirs in Islamic law are located outside the heirs who have the right to
receive an inheritance, because religious differences become an obstacle to obtaining inheritance
rights. The Hanafiyah Ulama viewed the will to non-Muslim heirs as valid and the jurists agreed that
the testament to the Muslim ghair ahl al-dzimmah was permissible. Therefore, granting inheritance
rights to non-Muslims in the form of a compulsory will is legal because religious differences do not
become a barrier to the validity of a will. Second, in its decision, the Panel of Judges gave reasons for
granting inheritance rights to non-Muslims through a mandatory will without questioning the religion
of the heirs by stating that non-Muslim heirs have the right to receive inheritance with the same
proportion as religious heirs. Islam from the inheritance left by the heirs. Third, the researcher found
