Shares of the heirs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Please tell me about shares of heirs, if a person is survived by 4 daughters, a wife and a sister, but has no parents or brothers. Also please tell me the share of heirs in the above case, if the sister is also deceased (before the death of the person whose wealth is to be distributed) but survived by two sons and two daughters. 

Answer

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

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

Accordingly, the estate will be divided into 24 equal shares as follows:
