Will step-sons inherit from a deceased mother?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

What is the ratio between son & daughter in the property of mother?

My father has two marriages, my real mother died first and then my father. My mother has some personal property. I want to ask you how we distribute our share in my mother property, is our step brother and sisters have share in our mother property or not.


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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuh.

In principle, step sons and daughters will not inherit from the deceased.

In order for us to advise you in regards to how the property you refer to should be distributed, you may send us a complete list of close relatives that survived your mother.

And Allah Ta‘ālā Knows Best
