Deceased leaves only one surviving sister and many nephews and nieces from already deceased brothers and sisters. No surviving parens and no surving children.
Who inherits and what would be their legitimate shares.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
When a person passed away firstly, the burial expenses would be paid for. This should not be too extravagant neither should it be thrifty. Thereafter, all debts, if any, will be paid off. This will be paid for from the entire estate. Thereafter, all bequests, if any will be fulfilled. This will be paid from one third of what ever remains after paying all debts. Thereafter, the remainder will be distributed to their respective inheritors.
The sister will inherit half the estate of the deceased.
None of the nieces will inherit.
Nephews (sisters sons) also will not inherit.
The remainder will be equally divided among the nephews (brothers sons).
