Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
We are three children of our parents two sisters and one brother. Explain the process of division about how to divide the property amongst ourselves. Both our paternal property and maternal property we want to know the process of distribution of shares.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1290/1161/L=11/1439)


If at the time of your father’s death none among your dada and dadi (paternal grandfather or grandmother) likewise at the time of your mother’s death none among your nana and nani (maternal grandfather or grandmother) was alive then all the property of your deceased parents will be divided into four shares. Out of the total, 2 shares shall go to the son and each daughter shall get 1-1 share. The detail of Shariah division is as follows:


Son:                  1 x 2 = 2

Daughters:        2 x 1 = 2


Total                      4        shares

Allah knows Best!
