Dividing house after death

Q: If I died how do I divide my house? I have 4 siblings all sisters and parents alive. Or, if I had the same situation but a divorced wife with my child then what do I do?


A: After a person’s demise his estate will be wound and distributed in accordance to the shar’ee stipulated shares of inheritance. If the wife is divorced, she will no longer inherit from her previous husband’s estate.
