(Fatwa: 383/344/M=4/1441)


In the question mentioned above if the parents of your deceased uncle are not alive then the property of your deceased uncle shall be divided into 1080 shares after paying due rights preceding inheritance. Out of total, his wife shall get 135 shares, while each daughter shall get 144-144 shares and each brother shall get 50-50 shares while the sister shall get 25 shares. The detail of Shariah division is as follows:


Wife:         1×135 = 135

Daughters: 5×144 = 720

Brothers:    4×050 = 200

Sister:        1×025 = 025

Total:                         1080

Allah knows Best!
