Q: My wife died recently. I like to know about wiraasat. We have a son and wife’s parents are alive and she also has one brother. Can you please let me know how much share will each get?
A: The estate will be divided into 12 equal shares and distributed as follows:
Father will receive 2 shares
Mother will receive 2 shares

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