(Fatwa: 870/870/M=1434)

In the above mentioned case the whole property of your father shall be divided into 96 shares. Out of which 12 shares shall go to your step mother (the second wife of your father) and 7 shares to her daughter while 14-14 shares to each brother and 7-7 shares to each sister. The detail of division is as follows:

Wife: 1×12 = 12
Sons: 3×14 = 42
Daughters: 6×07 = 42
Total: 96

Allah knows Best!
