(Fatwa: 364/H-314/TH=10/1434)

In case the details of the heirs are true, all the property left by the deceased shall be divided into 48 shares after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of the total, 6 shares shall go to the wife of deceased person, 14 shares to the son while 7-7 share shall go to each daughter.

Wife: 1×06=06
Son: 1×14=14
Daughters: 4×07 =28
Total: 48
