Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If your father is survived by his siblings then  they will inherit from his estate which includes your father’s house. After your father’s demise if his only heirs are his daughter (which in this case is you) and his (your fathers) 2 brothers and 3 sisters, the estate will be divided into 14 shares.

Beneficiaries Share Portfolio Share percentage
Daughter 7 50%
Fathers brother 2 14.28%
Fathers brother  2 14.28%
Fathers sister  1 7.14%
Fathers sister 1 7.14%
Fathers sister 1 7.14%
Total 14 99.98%

 

There was no mention of the wife (your mother) in the query. If the deceased is survived by his wife, daughter, his two brothers and sisters, the estate will be divided into 42 shares.

Beneficiaries Share Portfolio Share percentage
Mother 7 16.66%
Daughter 21 50%
Fathers brother 4 9.52%
Fathers brother  4 9.52%
Fathers sister  2 4.76%
Fathers sister 2 4.76%
Fathers sister 2 4.76%
Total 42 99.98%

 

The remaining 0.02 % can be redistributed according to the shares mentioned above or given into sadaqa. However, a competent Mufti or Daruliftaa should be approached after the demise for a definitive answer.
