Main Findings: voluntary legal action, which is based on the free will of the testator as the owner of the property. However, based on the word of Allah surah al-Baqarah (2) verse 180, the will law is obligatory, namely to give a share to parents or relatives who do not receive the inheritance because they are hijab (mahjub), or cannot become heirs because they are obstructed (mamnu).
