Inheriting from one’s maternal grandfather

Q: My question is about the share of a grand daughter from her grand father’s (maternal) property. The girl has married to a non Muslim (kafir) and has some children from him. Whether she is entitled for the share or not? If entitled than what shall be the percentage of her share? Her mother is still alive.


A: She will not be entitled to a share.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
