Partnership (Sharikah) means joining two properties together so that they cannot be separated. In Islamic contexts it means ‘having joint rights or actions’.This includes the rights to inheritance, will, or a gift that gives shares of benefit or ownership. This is also called ‘partnership in ownership’.Allah says: ‘Thus do many partners wrong one another, except for those who believe and do righteous deeds’ (38: 24) and ‘If there be more, then they shall share in one-third’ (4: 12).
