If Fazle Ilahi died in the presence of his parents, his children will have no shares in the property of their grandparents; since there are some other brothers of Fazle Ilahi (who will inherit their property). But, it was better for grandparents to give something as gift in their lifetime to their grandchildren. Or now the brothers of Fazle Ilahi, after receiving his shares, should give something to the children of late brother as benefaction and goodwill. This will be a great cause of good conduct with relatives.

Allah knows Best!
