Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

(Fatwa: 216/206/B=3/1438)

According to Shariah, in the above mentioned case all the property of your deceased father shall be divided into 72 shares. Out of the total, one eights part i.e. 9 shares shall go to your mother and 14-14 shares shall go to each brother, while the sister shall get 7 shares. The Shariah division of the property is as follows:


Wife:                1×09 = 09

Sons:                4×14 = 56

Daughter:          1×07 = 07

Total:                           72 Shares

Note: If your father did not leave his father or mother, rather he left only one wife, four sons and one daughter, then the above mentioned division is correct.

Allah knows Best!
