Q: A woman dies, leaving no parent, no son, 3 daughters, 2 brothers from same father and mother, 3 sisters from same father and mother, 2 maternal uncles and 1 maternal aunt. Please inform me how much share each of the deceased’s heirs will receive if 25 thousand dollars has to be divided.


A: The estate will be divided into 63 equal shares and distributed as follows:

Each daughter will receive 14 shares = 5555.55 each

Each brother will receive 6 shares = 2380.95 each

Each sister will receive 3 shares = 1190.47 each

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