Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 648/529/D=7/1438)

In the above mentioned case, the wealth of the mother shall be divided into 32 shares, out of the total, her husband shall get 8 shares, 6-6 shares shall go to each son while each daughter shall get 3-3 shares. The sisters shall get nothing. The Shariah division of the property is as follows:


Husband:          1×8 = 08

Sons:                3×6 = 18

Daughters:        2×3 = 06


Total:                           32 Shares

Allah knows Best!
