Property inheritance

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
We are 2 brothers and one sister who is no more. My father is alive but my mother is dead. My dead sister has left behind 1 son and 1 daughter, besides her husband. Are my sister’s children entitled to inherit our ancestral property? If yes, in what proportion?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 894/831/SD=9/1438)


If your father is alive then he alone is the owner of all his property. There is no share of any of his heir in his property before his death. He has full right in his property to use it as he wishes. During his lifetime if he wants to give something to his Nawasa and Nawasi (grandchildren) then he may give to them. Yes, after his death in the presence of his children, the Nawasa and Nawasi will get nothing.
