The results of the study found that indigenous wans in Margajaya village are using parental customary
law which is only focused on children and adopted children. The share of the heir’s parents only as a
gift for his parents, is not included in the wansan. The distribution of the wansan property was often
postponed by reason of using the children until they got married. The factor behind the occurrence
of this interview is the lack of knowledge of Islamic legal rights. The implementation of the law that
occurs in Margajaya village, when viewed from Islamic law, is basically not in accordance with
Islamic law. Things like this are considered normal and common in Margajaya society because it is a
tradition from generation to generation and their ancestors. The custom that is used by the community
in the distribution of inheritance cannot be used as a legal benchmark because it is against Nash, even
though the purpose of an inheritance is carried out in accordance with Maqasıd Al Syan ah, namely
justice, it is still not acceptable to Islam
