Question 1: Can you tell me a bit more about Tafseer-e Jalalain? Info like : who it’s written by, when it was written, how authentic and indepth it is, etc.

Question 2:
This question is about inheritence. Here is the scenario:
A father has 3 sons, among which the first two are married. The father passes away. The mother is alive. At the time of father’s death, the inheritence issue wasn’t taken care of (ie. the wealth wasn’t divided).
Oneday, the eldest son of the family passes away, leaving his wife behind, with no children. The family now wants to divide up father’s wealth. How should it be divided according to the Shari’ah?
The alive persons are :
-mother
-first son’s wife (no kids)
-second son, his wife (no kids)
-third son (no wife).
